Port Dover teen trying to conquer Lake Erie

Hamilton, ON, Canada / AM900 CHML | Hamilton News

A teen girl, believed to be the youngest to swim across Lake Ontario two years ago, is now taking on an even bigger challenge: a marathon swim along the longest stretch of Lake Erie.

Annaleise Carr began the 75-kilometre trek this morning in Erie, Pennsylvania.

The record-breaking swim will end in Port Dover and is estimated to take about 30 hours.

Carr says she’s hoping the weather holds off till her swim is done.

It’s a fundraiser for Camp Trillium.

Carr, who swam across Lake Ontario two years ago, is trying raise money for child cancer patients.

Her 2012 swim raised 115-thousand dollars for the same cause.
