Empire Crane Company's CEO Luke Lonergan is participating in Swim Across America in an effort to raise money for cancer research, prevention, and treatment. The swim will happen on Nov. 9 at the Syracuse Downtown YMCA.

"Everyone I know has been affected by cancer in one way or another; whether they've had to fight it themselves, or watch a parent, sibling, daughter, son, friend, or co-worker, battle for their life," Lonergan said.

Lonergan's goal is to raise $10,000 for cancer research in hopes of someday living in a cancer-free world.

Empire Crane Company was founded by Paul and Luke Lonergan in 2002. It is an authorized dealer of Terex, Tadano Mantis, Kobelco crawler cranes, Shuttlelift carry deck cranes, Manitex boom trucks, Wolffkran tower cranes, and Magni telehandlers. Empire Crane offers sales, parts, and service at its offices in Syracuse, N.Y., Bridgewater, N.J., and Boston, Mass.

Swim Across America (SAA) was founded in 1987 by Jeff Keith and Matt Vossler. For more information, or to donate, visit
