Local swimmer talks about 10k swim fundraiser for Camp Ooch

Four swimmers have continued a fairly recent annual tradition to raise money for a local charity summer camp.
On Monday morning, Moose FM Summer Squad member Jess Craymer joined three others in swimming 10 kilometers from the Bracebridge Falls to Allport Marina along the Muskoka River to raise money for Camp Ooch.
Craymer says she spent quite a few weeks in the pool preparing for the swim, but actually taking it on was an amazing feeling.
She says the original fundraising goal was $3,000, but when they hit that goal quicker than expected they pushed it to $5,500.
Craymer says just after the swim they had come very close to that number.
Camp Ooch provides the summer camp experience for kids who have been diagnosed with cancer.
Swim organizer Louise Hammond has been involved in this fundraising initiative for the past five years.
