Jeff and Sara Tow, a couple from the Grand Rapids area, have started their attempt to swim across Lake Michigan this morning:
"TEAM TOW" IS AT THE LIGHTHOUSE IN TWO RIVERS, WI (7:30 Wisconsin time) AND READY TO GET IN THE WATER TO START THEIR 50 PLUS MILE SWIM ACROSS LAKE MICHIGAN TO "BIG SAUBLE POINT LIGHTHOUSE" IN LUDINGTON, MI. IF ALL GOES ACCORDING TO PLANS THEY SHOULD BE ON DRY LAND BY LATE WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON (Aug. 15th)!
PLEASE KEEP THEM IN YOUR THOUGHTS AND PRAYERS.
