This Navy veteran, Chris Ring, is swimming the entire Mississippi River to bring awareness and honor fallen heroes and their families.
Chris Ring’s mission is sponsored by Legacies Alive, a nonprofit organization based in Pennsylvania. The money that is raised will go directly to support the families and to projects that will memorialize their loved ones in their hometowns.
Legacies Alive’s mission statement:
Legacies Alive strengthens and supports every family of the fallen and brings national awareness to the life and character of each service member who paid the ultimate sacrifice for our country. We want to provide unwavering support to families of the fallen by ensuring the legacies of our fallen heroes are forever alive.
