Organizers point out it’s a cause a lot of people can get behind.

“Think about a lost loved one or someone who might be struggling, most all of us know someone who’s been affected by cancer,” Joel Swartz an organizer of the event said.

The event kicked off with a brass band playing the national anthem from inside the pool.
