THE STORY:

On July 24, I will be swimming from Asia to Europe for my 11 year old neighbor and friend Lucas, who has Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy.

Lucas and I both love swimming. We're often at the Y swimming together and he's always excited, energetic and just plain fun to be around.

My intercontinental swim crosses the famed Bosphorus channel, an arduous 6.5 km journey filled with strong currents, massive waves and dangerous marine life. Here is a good article on the challenge: http://m.voanews.com/a/fifteen-hundred-swim-bosphorus-from-asia-to-europe/1700098.html

But it's worth it if it helps cure Duchenne. Proceeds will go to Lucas's favorite 501(c)3 charity.  Thank you for your support.
