Want to Swim in the Chicago River?
The Chicago River Swim event spear-holder, Doug McConnell, talked with John Williams of WGN Radio about the event.
There is a charity component to this event, benefiting ALS Research (Lou Gehrig’s Disease.) A Long Swim is an open water swimming venue that uses peer to peer fundraising to support Chicago’s world class ALS research at Northwestern, the University of Chicago, and the University of Illinois at Chicago.
