Contratulations to

Annaleise Carr, who finished her 27 hour, 52-kilometre swim across Lake Ontario shortly before 9 p.m. Sunday. Her swim began when she entered the water at Niagara-on-the-Lake at 6:17 p.m. on Saturday.

Annaleise raised $115,000.00 for Camp Trillium, a camp for children with cancer.

Did I mention that Annaleise is 14 years old?

You go girl!!
