Chicago Woman Attempts First-Ever 1500-Mile Solo Row Around Lake Michigan to Support Breast Cancer Recovery Team

  #
Jenn Gibbons, founder and coach of Recovery on Water (ROW), a rowing team for breast cancer survivors, has announced she will embark on a 1,500-mile perimeter row of Lake Michigan. Departing from Chicago on June 15 and rowing along the shores of Illinois, Wisconsin, Michigan, and Indiana, Gibbons will visit port towns along the lake, bringing awareness to the vital role exercise plays in the fight against breast cancer.

"A trip like Row4ROW has never been done before," said Gibbons. "By rowing Lake Michigan, I aim to bring awareness to the positive benefits of exercise for cancer survivors. Research shows that exercise reduces cancer recurrence in breast cancer survivors by fifty percent, and women who have no history of the disease can reduce their risk with exercise by thirty percent." The funds Gibbons raises will provide scholarships and equipment for the ROW team so that more survivors can get fit, fight back, and have fun. Donate to Gibbons or sponsor her trip at row4row.org.  more...

Through The Blue

  #
Sara and Jeff / Lake Michigan

In August of 2012 (around the 15th – 17th, depending on weather conditions), we’ll be crossing Lake Michigan at its midpoint. Straight across, this is a 50 mile swim… an ultra-marathon swim. With current and wind and the ever-changing, unpredictable weather on the lake, the likelihood is we’ll swim between 55 and 60 miles when we step on the beach in Ludington, Michigan.

We’ll get in the water before the sunrises in Two Rivers, Wisconsin and start our approximately 30-35 hour journey. A support boat (or two) will lead the way with a captain, first mate and several other crew members. These crew members will be our lifeline. They will feed us and keep us motivated and guide us through the trip. Crew members will rotate shifts in a small boat that will trail the main boat. Feeding is easier from the smaller boat due to the height of the main boat and the safety of being far from the motors and shifting nature of the larger vessel.

Spring Boating Expo Takes Opportunity to Warn Boaters about Dangers of E15 Gasoline

  #

Livonia, Mich., March 11, 2011 – With more than 14,000 boaters expected to attend, show management of the Spring Boating Expo is taking the opportunity to educate boaters about the dangers of E15 gasoline.  Boaters who fuel their boats from the same pumps as their vehicle may be at risk of unknowingly or mistakenly putting 15 percent ethanol and 85 percent gasoline (E15) into an engine for which E15 has not been approved.  “Only one small label is required on the pump to warn boaters of the 50 percent increase in ethanol,” said Show Manager John Ropp.  “We feel the need to educate boaters of the potential for engine damage when using E15.”  more
