Attempt to Swim From Cape Cod to Nantucket to Support Nantucket Hospital Underway

Nantucket SwimmerYARMOUTH – A swimmer began his attempt early Friday morning to make the 25-mile trek across Nantucket Sound to raise money for cancer programs on Nantucket.

Grant Wentworth, 28, has raised $130,000 so Nantucket Cottage Hospital can bring an oncologist to the island from Massachusetts General Hospital each week.

He began the swim from Yarmouth to Nantucket around 4 a.m. from Seagull Beach in Yarmouth.

Wentworth is partnering with Swim Across America, which was founded in 1987 as a relay swim across Nantucket Sound. Swim Across America supports cancer programs, research, prevention, and treatment with swimming-related fundraisers.
