Daring the Impossible: A Strong Woman Takes on the World

Luncheon 12 noon, Conversations 1:15 p.m.


 Lynne Cox

For Lynne Cox in 1987, this meant a 2.7 mile swim across the Bering Straits, where water temperatures range from 38-42 miles Fahrenheit. This frigid swim began a thaw of the Cold War; as Presidents Reagan and Gorbachev proclaimed that Lynne "proved by her courage how closely to each other our peoples live." The International Swimming Hall of Fame calls Lynne "the best cold water, long distance swimmer the world has ever seen." She is also the author of the critically acclaimed book Swimming to Antarctica. (She really did).

At lunch, Lynne received the Susan B. Anthony Legacy Award.
