Rower begins journey for cancer awareness

June 15, 2012 (CHICAGO)

Jenn Gibbons began what she hopes is a 1,500 mile journey.

She's rowing along the perimeter of Lake Michigan to raise awareness about the vital role exercise plays in the fight against breast cancer.

Gibbons founded ROW, which is a rowing team for survivors of the disease.

She plans to row ten hours a day stopping only to sleep and share the mission of her organization.
