BURLINGTON, Vt. – Several members of the Vermont women’s swimming & diving team are taking the challenge and swimming 3.76 miles from New York to Vermont across Lake Champlain this Sunday (Sept. 13) to help raise funds for the Lake Champlain Committee (LCC).
The race begins from the foothills of the Adirondack Mountains at the Old Dock in the quaint town of Essex, New York and takes swimmers across Lake Champlain to the Charlotte public beach in the town of Charlotte, Vermont.
