Rush Sets The Pace For Themselves And Elizabeth Plank

Anthem Records Press Release, August 13, 1979

While RUSH is preparing themselves for their two Canadian dates, forthcoming album and an American tour, they are also, once again, sponsoring Elizabeth Plank - the 15 year old swimmer who RUSH co-sponsored last year to swim across Lake Ontario, RUSH is Elizabeth's favorite rock group.

Elizabeth Plank was born in Toronto, March 23rd, 1964 and has been a swimmer since she was four years old. Last year Elizabeth attempted the lake and was pulled out four miles from Ontario Place because of a severe electrical storm.

She will begin this year's swim at Niagara-on-the-Lake (Royal Queens Beach) at 12:05 a.m., August 18th, 1979 (weather permitting).

Upon completion of her swim, Elizabeth will become the youngest swimmer to conquer the lake.
