Two local swimmers took the plunge this morning to help a local camp that serves children living with cancer.  The pair are swimming 10km in support of Camp Oochigeas along the Muskoka River and into Lake Muskoka. They started at 7am from the Bracebridge Wharf and are expected to land at the Allport Marina around 9:30/10am.

Marilyn Smart, who has raised almost $400 and Louise Hammond who has raised almost $3,000 are swimming with the support of folks in a canoe and kayak who are monitoring their progress the way down the river. Click the links below to help the swimmers raise more money for this great cause!
