CHICAGO (CBS) — It’s a beautiful day to be at the beach, but a group of people swimming in Lake Michigan this morning were interested in more than just enjoying the weather, reports WBBM’s Nancy Harty.
About 400 swimmers, many in wet suits, hit the water at Ohio Street Beach as part of a fundraiser through Swim Across America.
Rob Micuda was swimming for the first time in the Swim Across America fundraiser to honor his mother Eva, who died of uterine cancer two years ago.
“It was getting really wavy out there so yeah, it was a lot of fun. It was a great time, a great cause,” said Micuda.
