Urgent Help Needed for Upcoming Historic Swim

Next week Sara and Jeff Tow are departing on the swim of their lifetime: Crossing Lake Michigan at its midpoint. Straight across, this is a 50 mile ultra-marathon. With current wind and the ever-changing, unpredictable weather on the lake, the likelihood is they’ll swim between 55 and 60 miles between Two Rivers, Wisconsin and Ludington, Michigan. Only one person on earth has completed a mid-lake crossing, he is now their coach. Their goal is to become the first married couple, and only the second and third persons ever, to complete a mid-lake swim across Lake Michigan. Sara would be the first U.S. female to cross the Lake, ever. As a married couple, they’d be the first anywhere to make a crossing together. In fact, the first married couple to complete an ultra-marathon swim together anywhere in the world. Sara anf Jeff are making this attempt to bring awareness to the struggles of postpartum depression.
As of yesterday morning, their guide boats and captains have had to withdraw from the adventure for personal reasons. This means they now have NO escort boats to help them get across the lake. They are in desperate need of at least one boat, 35+ feet or longer (sail or power) to guide them across the lake or the swim will be canceled. If you are or know of a boat owner or Captain in West Michigan or East Wisconsin who would like to be a part of this historic journey, please contact them as soon as possible as their leave date for Wisconsin is still August 12th!
