Congrats to Chris Ring for becoming the 1st American to swim the entire length of the Mississippi River!
Legacies Alive's 2015 Legacy Challenge is “Swim For Their Sacrifice"! We are very excited to sponsor Navy combat veteran, Chris Ring, as he swims the length of the Mississippi River to honor our fallen heroes and the spouses that they left behind. Once Chris achieves this feat, he will be the first American to swim the entire Mississippi River!
We honor all of our Nation's fallen heroes and their Gold Star Families. The swim will end at Mile Marker 0, where the Mississippi River meets the Gulf of Mexico, but the journey will ultimately culminate on December 12th at the Army-Navy game at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia.
