AMERICAN CANCER SURVIVOR SWIMS RIVER SHANNON AND SUPPORTS CCF Who is Dean Hall? Dean Hall, the only person to have swum the entire length 184 miles of the Willamette River, is at it again. He is not satisfied with holding the title of only one record-setting swim. He is dedicated to setting another record and fulfilling the seemingly impossible dream of going to Ireland and becoming the first person to swim the entire length of the River Shannon. The River Shannon is the British Isle’s longest river and is very much in length and character like the Willamette.
