As most of you know five brave men committed to swim from Harsens Island to The Grosse Pointe yacht Club. September 4, 2008.
Fox 2 news planned on covering the event...although, there was something more important to cover...the plea agreement of the now ex-mayor of Detroit. So because of this man, fox 2 had to miss the event.
More important, we were there for them cheering them as they came in. Can you imagine swimming for 8 hours? I can't.
When you love your kids... you can do things you'd never think you could do, the human spirit is so incredible.
Congratulations: Ric Geyer, Derek Weaver, Greg McDuffee, Mike Hutchinson, Mike Stevens And a special thanks to Shaun McElroy for volunteering to ride the entire day in the boat, watching out for these guys. He is an EMT.
Head on over to candidcarrie and check out all of the cool pictures...their has to be hundreds of them by now.
