I just had the opportunity to watch a documentary about a guy who swam the entire length of the Columbia River. It took him 13 months and he swam over 1,200 miles. The swim was to raise awareness about the popultion and devistation currently affecting the river, most notably the salmon population.

Not only was it for a good cause, it was an incredibly swim. It was really interesting to learn about all that is going on, I had no idea.

While the ultimate purpose of the documentary is environmental awareness, the swimming aspect isn't lost.

Check out the website for some more information about the cause and the swim.
