Scene: Annaleise Carr Arrives in Toronto

Fourteen-year-old becomes the youngest to swim across Lake Ontario, and raises more than $90,000 for charity in the process.

Teen Is Youngest to Swim Across Lake Ontario


WHERE: Marilyn Bell Park

WHEN: Sunday August 19, 9 p.m.

WHAT: This weekend, after 27 hours and 52 kilometres, 14-year-old Annaleise Carr became the youngest person known to swim across Lake Ontario. She came up with the idea when she decided she wanted to help Camp Trillium, which provides camping experiences to kids with cancer, but was told she was too young to volunteer. After successfully finishing her swim, Carr was taken to the Hospital for Sick Children for a check-up: she’s sore but doing well, and will hold a press conference his afternoon to discuss her swim in more detail. Donations, reportedly, are still pouring in.

The first person to cross Lake Ontario was long-distance swimmer Marilyn Bell, in 1954, at the age of 16. Bell and Carr are slated to chat over the phone today.
