On May 2, 2012, Matthew Moseley and Glynde "Mango" Mangum (both Louisiana state natives) will be swimming for the light! A 24-mile swim, in fact, along the longest bridge in the world. All to raise money for the rebuilding of the New Canal Lighthouse, which was destroyed by Hurricane Katrina in 2005. We are working with the Lake Pontchartrain Basin Foundation and donation can be made at saveourlake.org/matt-swim.php "Can you see it burning? Will you bring it in? Tell me that you see it... Swim, My Brother, Swim!"
This year's swim is dedicated to Coco Robicheaux (October 25, 1947-November 25, 2011), Eternal Soul Captain of Our Eternal Support Boat
