Make-A-Wish Benefit Swim
August 2, 2020 11:30 am - 2:00 pmo
Have you ever looked out at the lake and thought, “I wonder if anyone has ever tried to swim to Kelleys!”
Two island women have been carrying on that very tradition for over 20 years!
For this special event, Cindra Mielke and Jeni Hammond will swim across Lake Erie, ending at Portside Marina, 116 W Lakeshore Dr, around 11:30 am – 12noon.
Their Swims have been as long as 8 1/2 hours (around Kelleys Island) to 2 hours (Marblehead to Kelleys). Make-A-Wish families, guests, and islanders line Portside Marina’s dock to see the ladies swim in. Life Flight makes a pass over in honor of the Make-A-Wish Children.
