#SwimforErie this weekend

A group of four swimmers are preparing to complete a series of 10 swims across Lake Erie, all in a span of 24 hours this weekend.

Their first swim will be in the Detroit River, out to Peche Island and back, beginning at sunrise on Saturday.

Their last swim will be from Crystal Beach on Sunday.

The swimmers have teamed up with the Canadian Freshwater Alliance and their new Lake Erie Guardians initiative to help raise awareness and funds to protect Lake Erie and its waterways.
Taking on the Swim for Erie challenge are accomplished swimmers Anita Doppenberg from Niagara-on-the-Lake, Josh Reid from Simcoe, Michael Kenny from Cambridge, and Jennifer Agnew from Harrow.
