LEE COUNTY, Fla.- A Cape Coral man wants you to join him 'swim for kids' across the Caloosahatchee River in October.
George Williamson lost his left leg below the knee at age 27, but that's not stopping him from conquering the Caloosa.
Williamson swam across the river last year and now wants others to join. It's all in effort to raise money and awareness for mentors and helping at-risk kids in Lee County.
The swim is Saturday, October 26 at 7:30 a.m. You can sign up online at www.active.com.
The 1.25 mile swim will start at the midpoint bridge on the Fort Myers side, and end at Horton Park. It's limited to 120 swimmers.
