September Adopt-a-Beach

This weekend the Alliance for the Great Lakes is coordinating its annual September Adopt-a-Beach at all of Chicago’s beaches.

As luck/chance/fate would have it, Laura, one of our Ladder #1 regulars, will be down at Rainbow on 77th – the same beach where Paula started her trans-Lake Michigan swim last month. As a site coordinator, Laura organizes the beach cleanup efforts at that particular beach.

I participated in the Adopt-a-Beach program last summer, and I can relate first hand that it’s a great program run by a fantastic organization. So if any of you wish to volunteer your time for a great cause (and have lots of fun with other swimmers and lake aficionados), just show up at Rainbow Beach (77th and the Lake) at 9:00am Saturday, September 19, 2009.

NOTE: If you can’t make it down to Rainbow Beach, this event will be taking place at all beaches from 9:00am – 12:00pm.
