BENEFITING: HABITAT FOR HUMANITY-REBUILD MICHIGAN
EVENT: Mighty Mac Swim 2016
EVENT DATE: Sep 05, 2016
Hello! My name is Chris Thompson from Dexter, Michigan and I’m very excited to be participating in the 2016 Mighty Mac Swim. I’ve been involved in the sport of swimming for nearly 30 years and during my career I have had the opportunity to compete all over the world. The highlights include winning the Bronze Medal in the 1500 Meter Freestyle at the 2000 Sydney Olympic Games and holding the American Record in the 1650 for 11 years. The Mighty Mac Swim looks to be one of the best open water competitions I’ve been involved in and I look forward to the challenge of swimming across the straits of Mackinac.
In order to participate I need your help! I am proudly working to raise money for Habitat for Humanity of Michigan. Shelter is one of the most basic of necessities to survive; however, a home also provides a family security, comfort, memories and happiness. Knowing the money I raise will go towards building a home for a family in need is an added bonus to competing in this special event. Please help make this event a success by donating any amount you can- even a dollar helps me get closer to my goal of $5000. Thank you for your generosity!
