MAN SWIMS TO RAISE AWARENESS FOR TYPE 1 DIABETES

After being the first person to run from Disneyland to Disney World last year, Don Muchow recently participated in the College of the Florida Keys’ Swim Around Key West.

 Muchow, 60, ran the marathon to raise awareness for Type 1 diabetes and did the same with the Key West swim. He is not the first person with Type 1 diabetes to compete in the swim—his friend and swim mentor, Karen, has completed a solo 12.5- mile swim around Key West. Karen also has Type 1 diabetes.

Muchow was the overall male winner in the 10k (6.2 mile) swim that took place on June 18. The swim started and ended at Smathers Beach. Muchow’s time was 3:42:36.
