A very successful fundraising swim was held at Penhorn Lake in Dartmouth, NS on August 21st, 2019 at noon and 6pm (followed by a picnic) in support of Christmas Daddies.
“I am very proud of those who pledged, swam and support this Maritime tradition..A personal milestone for me is swimming 1609.3 metres = one mile this year. Yeah!” said Joan Quinlan, Event Organizer. When asked what inspires her, Joan replied “This annual swim fundraiser is in memory of my brother, Kevin Quinlan, Sydney, NS and Audrey Quinlan-Myrden of Manly, Australia, both of whom were community activists for kids and who who are always in my heart. It was a fun day!”
Watch for the grand total during the 56th Annual Christmas Daddies Telethon in early December on CTV.
