Final update on the “big swim” across Lake Michigan

Neil and Sara Tow, the former local couple who’ve trained for the past year to make an epic swim across Lake Michigan, made a heroic effort (covering 40 miles), but unfortunately, fell about 10 miles short. During the final leg, not only were they ravaged by dehydration and a general deterioration of their medical condition, but strong lake currents threw them so much off course that they couldn’t continue.

The Tows believe, however, that their swim has drawn national attention to perinatal depression, a condition that can affect both men and women and has. in fact, plagued both Jeff and his wife, Sara, after the birth of each of their children.
