Rower raising money sexually assaulted


by Michele McCormack

MILWAUKEE -- It was back in June that Jennifer Gibbons rowed into Milwaukee to bring awareness to her mission to raise money for breast cancer research and patients.

She was rowing the perimeter of Lake Michigan.

The Chicagoan kept fans informed of her progress on her Facebook page, and in a shocking entry has now disclosed to the public that she was sexually assaulted while on the trip.

The assault happened while she was sleeping on her boat in Michigan on Sunday, July 22nd.

She is speaking out in hopes it will help capture the man who police believe may have used her blog to learn of her whereabouts.

She also wants the attacker to know that it will not stop her.
