John Quackenbush of Salt Lake City will attempt a 19-mile swim across Bear Lake on the Utah/Idaho border. On August 8th, he will start his 19-mile (30.5K) attempt at 6,000 feet (1,828 meters) altitude with expected water temperatures around 60°F (15.5°C).
John's swim is a charity fundraiser for No More Homeless Pets. 100% of all proceeds will be donated directly to this worthy cause.
I've been trying to find out more information about John, his swim and his fundraiser but have been unable to come up with anything. If anyone has any details about this swim, please send me an email or leave a comment.
