Sexually assaulted rower undeterred for good cause

Facebook

I read about this in the Chicago Sun-Times

Jenn Gibbons, a 27 year old Chicago woman, who’s rowing 1,500 miles along the entire coast of Lake Michigan in an effort to raise money for breast cancer had made a point of using a blog to keep supporters aware of her journey. Earlier this week, a man used this transparency against her when he estimated Gibbons’ whereabouts. In the evening, with the rower asleep in the cabin of her boat, the man broke in and sexually assulted her.
