The Great Diabetes Swim is live! Marian launched at 7am on August 4th.

Track Marian's progress across Torch Lake

My name is Marian Cardwell and I am endeavoring to complete a series of swims for the Chicago Diabetes Project (CDP), a type 1 diabetes research foundation. My original goal to complete the 108-mile trek from Chicago, IL to Grand Haven, MI in August 2021, unfortunately had to be deferred due to unexpected logistical issues. Instead, my goal for August 2021 is to swim the length of Torch Lake six times, totaling over 100 miles. I anticipate it may take about 60 hours of nonstop swimming. The Torch Lake swim is scheduled to start on August 4, 2021 and finish on August 6th! Please join me in supporting type 1 diabetes research and all of the #Type1Tough people out there! Click here to donate. You can also buy merch here!

100% of of the donations will go towards funding a cure through the Chicago Diabetes Project.
