CIBBOWS board member Alan Morrison swam 24 miles from Brooklyn Bridge to Coney Island Pier and back while raising awareness for the Bellevue/NYU Program for Survivors of Torture. Dodging multiple tankers, angry cargo ships. and at least 5 cruise ships (including the QE2) he held fast and complete his swim as the blood moon rose over the city spread before us.  All the while he was still able to smile and crack jokes--what an inspiration to us all!  

Go Alan!
