6 Months Pregnant and Swimming the Grand Traverse Bay

Nearly 100 swimmers dove into the beautiful Grand Traverse Bay on Saturday for the Fourth Annual Swim for Grand Traverse Bay.

The swim is one of the regions only point to point swims- starting in Grelickville Park and ending at the sand volleyball courts near downtown Traverse City.

And 9&10’s Caroline Klapp was there to report and to compete!

It benefits the Grand Traverse Bay Watershed, a nonprofit which works to protect the regions water.

More than 70 swimmers competed this year, raising more than $19,000 for the Watershed.

And for some parents to be, this day had a very special meaning.

We dove deeper into Heather Muhlhauser’s journey as she competed at 6 ½ months pregnant!
