Swim Across America, a national non-profit dedicated to raising money and awareness for cancer research, this month donated $460,000 to the Stamford-based Alliance for Cancer Gene Therapy (ACGT), the nation’s only non-profit dedicated exclusively to cell and gene therapies for cancer.

With the leadership of president, co-founder and Greenwich resident Barbara Netter and the foundation’s Board of Directors and Scientific Advisory Council, ACGT has provided over $24 million in grants since 2001, funding research and clinical trials that have saved lives.

See the recent Connecticut Magazine story on ACGT, and its website, to learn more about its fight against cancer.
