Countdown to " Swim for your Heart...Feb 14"
Good luck to all swimmers participating in the "Swim for your Heart..Feb 14" swim. There has been a tremendous response from the international swim community. Together we can bring an awareness of heart disease prevention. A special thank you to Mexican marathon swimmer Antonio Arguelles and Mariel Hawley for organizing 1400 swimmers to participate in Mexico. And a special thank you to "Big Rick's Outdoor Swim Team" for helping to spread the word and participating in this event in England. Also, thank you to the many swimmers from other countries and the U.S. And finally, this "Swim for your Heart..Feb 14" swim was prompted by the tragic death of U.S. swimmer Fran Crippen during a FINA Open Water 19 Km World Cup. It is a wonderful tribute to him.
