Mission Accomplished! We Paddled Across Lake Michigan
We did it! Finally!
After two years of planning and a frustrating summer last year where we were skunked by the weather, the team has completed its paddle across Lake Michigan to raise money for the Alliance for the Great Lakes.
The successful (and exhausted!) paddlers were Kwin Morris, Jeff Guy, J Mueller, Joe Lorenz, and Nick Darga.
All of us at Stand Up for Great Lakes would like to thank our generous sponsors R. L. Morris & Sons, Twin Birch Golf Club, John A. Gessner Photography, Cherry Republic, 45º North, Anytime Fitness, Espresso Bay, and Paddle Guys. Special thanks to Ford Motor Company for providing our escort boats and a film crew.
Most of all, we would like to thank the friends, family, and many strangers who donated to our cause, supported us, and wished us well on this crazy adventure.
Thank you, all.
