Anyone who has seen the crystal clear waters of Lake Michigan and the Grand Traverse Bay knows how important their preservation is to everyone. All the money raised in this swim will go towards achieving this goal. Ex swimmers, ex students, and current friends,Moose, and Legion members can also get the personal satisfaction of knowing that they contributed to making me plunge into the icy waters of the bay at 8 am. That alone should be worth a donation even if this wasn't for such a great cause. I encourage everyone to make a small pledge, together we can have a big impact. Thanks!
