Let's do it together Legends!

The Edmund Fitzgerald Memorial swim combines two of my loves in life: Water sports and History! I'm honored to be able to have a small part in honoring the men who lost their lives on that fateful day back in November of 1975. "The Legend Lives on..."

My fellow swimmers and I are raising funds for the Great Lakes Shipwreck Historical Society (GLSHS) to preserve the Whitefish Point Light Station, a most important beacon for all vessels entering or leaving Lake Superior since 1849, and the oldest operating lighthouse on the lake.   Thank you for supporting me in this historic, once-in-a-lifetime adventure that will carry on the legacy of the 29 men lost on the Edmund Fitzgerald 50 years ago.  By helping me meet my fundraising goal, you are also helping renovate the Whitefish Point Lighthouse that safeguards mariners along Lake Superior's "Shipwreck Coast."
