He Did It!

I'm a little late posting this but...Congrats to John Quackenbush who made history Monday by being the first person to swim the 19+ mile length of Bear Lake. He started his swim a little later than planned at 9:00am on Sunday due to colder than expected weather. John suffered from mild hypothermia and had strained his lower back and wrist by the end of his swim. John followed Channel Swimming Guidelines, which basically means that he could wear a swimsuit (no wetsuit), one cap and goggles and could not touch the boat or another person.

If you still haven't donated to No More Homeless Pet of Utah, you can do so quickly and easily on their website.
