This year's attempt is June 3, 2017.
1. to raise awareness of the dangers of developing diabetes. The Mississippi Delta is in the epicenter of the worldwide diabetes epidemic. We are all at risk, but we can take steps to prevent this disease.
2. to raise funds for the Diabetes Foundation of Mississippi.
3. Zane hopes to prevent himself from becoming a diabetic through his athletic adventures. This condition runs in his family.
4. Zane hopes to inspire others to exercise and take control of their health.
Keep up with Zane’s training and plans at www.EndangeredSwimmer.blogspot.com and at EndangeredSwimmer on YouTube.
You can also purchase a T-shirt for $20.00 directly from Zane Hodge. Find him on Facebook. All $20.00 goes to the DFM, and 100% of funds donated to them stays in the State of Mississippi to educate, provide supplies, give treatment for people with diabetes.
If interested in going out to support Zane: He plans to leave The State Park swimming at approximately 6:00 am on June 3rd and finish at the same boat ramp somewhere between 7:00 and 7:30 pm.
