Navy Veteran To Swim Through St. Cloud Metro Over Next Few Days
RICE -- Be on the lookout for Navy Veteran Chris Ring and his crew swimming down the Mississippi River the next few days.
Last week we told you about Ring's story as he swims the length of the Mississippi River to honor our fallen heroes.
At the time he was at Camp Ripley and today (Monday) and tomorrow (Tuesday) will be in the St. Cloud area.
Swim Team lead Justin Renken says Ring started the day about a half mile past the County Road 2 bridge crossing in Rice and is expected to end at the Sartell Dam around 5:00 p.m. (depending on how many Gold Star families he meets along the way).
Renken says they expect to get back in the water around 9:00 a.m. or 10:00 a.m. tomorrow (Tuesday).
If you are interested in cheering him on, look for him swimming along the Mississippi River throughout the day.
The “Swim for a Sacrifice” challenge is put on by Legacies Alive, who is sponsoring Ring on his journey.
Ring began his journey on June 6th and hopes to end his journey on December 12th.
