Man to swim across Chesapeake Bay for kids with special needs


A Virginia Beach man has spent months prepping to swim across Chesapeake Bay on Sept. 5 to raise money for people with special needs.

Robert Cass said he will  swim between 11 and 14 hours from the Eastern Shore to Buoy 44 in hopes of raising $50,000 for a non-profit that helps people with special needs compete in endurance events, WTKR reported.

“Today’s just a regular training day, run of the mill,” Cass while during a break from training Thursday. “A little bumpy out there today, but we’re training to swim across the bay for Ainsley’s Angels… to buy special-needs wheelchairs or race chairs so these kids can participate in races.”
