Interviews with Mimi Hughes, who will swim the Ohio River from 22 May - 17 July, from Pittsburgh PA to Cairo IL, to raise funds and awareness for girls' and women's education and lifeskills programs. Mimi is the first person to swim the entire length of the Danube River at one time (summer 2006). As a passionate educator, she believes each person has the power to effect change, especially with the help of meaningful education. Tune in to listen to Mimi talk about her journey along the Ohio River and the grassroots involvement of so many individuals and organizations. From kayakers to community activists, journalists to teachers, executives to artists, the range of people supporting the Ohio River Swim mission shows how collective action inspires us all.
