For the past 24 years, Cindra Mielke and Jeni Hammond have been doing long distance Lake Erie swims, ending at Portside Marina, 116 W Lakeshore Dr, around 11:30 am – 12noon. 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. Once the ladies are onshore, everyone is invited to a party at Dockers Waterfront Restaurant & Bar, 114 W Lakeshore Dr. Come meet our Make-A-Wish Children, both past & present. The donation to the Make-A-Wish was $34,500.00 from the 2017 event!
