All summer, my friend and co-worker has been on a brave journey - rowing the entire 1,500 mile perimeter of Lake Michigan to raise awareness and funds for her foundation, which works to rehabilitate breast cancer survivors. Something truly amazing and selfless.
Today, I learned that she was sexually assaulted while stopping over in Michigan Sunday morning. I ask that you consider re-posting or sharing this in an effort to help track down the assailant. Thank you.
“Unfortunately, the Row4ROW team has some sad news to report and we need your help. Jenn was set to row to Beaver Island on Sunday morning but was attacked and sexually assaulted by a man in the early morning hours. Investigators have reason to believe the assailant traveled a significant distance to commit the assault. The suspect is described as a white male in his 30s, approximately 5’8” to 6’ tall, with a fair amount of facial stubble hair, but not a full beard nor mustache. The man has light eyes, an average to athletic build and shorter well-kept hair. He was wearing a grayish green t-shirt, jean shorts and tennis shoes. A bright yellow Jeep Wrangler was seen in the area. It has a spare tire on the back with a yellow smiley face on it. Investigators are seeking information about this vehicle. Anyone with information or investigative leads please call the Michigan State Police toll-free at 1-866-411-0018. Please know that Jenn is safe and in good hands. A statement from her about the trip and future plans will be made very soon. Please re-post and help us find this criminal. Thank you for your continued support of Row4ROW.”
