"Swimming Toward a Cure" documentary showing 1 p.m. Feb. 10 in Ann Arbor
The documentary film "Swimmng Toward a Cure," about last summer's English Channel relay swim by six Michigan women raising money for ALS research, will debut Sunday, Feb. 10 at 1 p.m. in the Blau Auditorium of the U-M Ross School of Business.
The swimmers broke the existing relay record and have collected nearly $100,000 toward their $120,000 goal. They are affiliated with Ann Arbor Active Against ALS (A2A3), a grass-roots non-profit organization that funds research into new treatments for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). A reception and Q&A with the swimmers will follow the film showing. Suggested donation is $10 per individual or $25 per family.
