27-hour swim raises $115,000 for Camp Trillium

After spending nearly 27 hours in the water, Ontario teenager Annaleise Carr not only accomplished an incredible feat she swam across Lake Ontario Sunday, the 14-year-old also raised a staggering amount of money for a summer camp.

Carr’s feat, which is believed to be a first for someone so young, helped raise $115,000 for Camp Trillium, an Ontario summer camp for children with cancer and their families.

To accomplish the feat, Carr had to swim 52 kilometers and battle waves that reached as high as 1.5 meters, according to a story in the National Post.
