The Morning Swim Show: Skip Storch Relives Sept. 11 Attacks, Experience of Swimming Around Manhattan Island

PHOENIX, Arizona, September 11. TO commemorate the seventh anniversary of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, The Morning Swim Show devotes today show to an interview with a man who has a special connection to the attacks, especially in the way he has worked to memorialize those affected physically by the aftermath.

Host Peter Busch talks to Skip Storch, who completed a three-lap swim around Manhattan Island in 2007, was afflicted with sacroidosis, which affected his lungs and spurned him on to marathon swim to raise awareness and funds for sacroidosis research.

Storch relives his experiences during Sept. 11, 2001, as well as what marathon swimming means to him. He talks about why he did the Manhattan Island trip – which added up to 85 miles – and what his goal was in terms of remembering the victims.
