PROMO: SWIMMING FOR A CAUSE: HELPING YOUTH FIGHT CANCER PART 1
This week on AIMED 2 PURPOSE - The Radio Show, we have a two part episode with our special guest, Annaleise Carr!
Annaleise Carr is a 16 year old, female marathon swimmer from Walsh, Ontario in Norfolk County. In August 2012, she became the youngest person to ever swim across Lake Ontario, while raising money and awareness for Camp Trillium.
Camp Trillium is a charity that provides a camping experience at Rainbow Lake for children with cancer.
Annaleise was able to finish swimming across Lake Ontario with the time of 26 hours and 41 minutes, becoming the youngest person to complete the swim and also joining the "24 Hour Club" (which includes all swimmers who do a marathon swim for 24 hours or longer).
With her world record swim, she was able to raise more awareness towards Camp Trillium and childhood cancer, her original goal of $30,000 now going over $200,000.
