This week's Vincent Award goes to Chris Ring. Chris is a Navy veteran who has taken on the challenge of swimming the entire length of the Mississippi river (2,552 miles) over a 6-month period as a way to honor fallen veterans and their families. Chris has chosen to do this as a way to support an organization called Legacies Alive. Chris is only a few weeks into his 6-month swim. He swims an average of 16 miles a day at a pace of around 4 mph. The rest of the day he spends connecting with families of fallen veterans along the way.
Good luck Chris. Not only did you serve our country in the armed forces but you continue to serve by giving the families that lost a loved one hope and someone they can connect with.
