Swimming for a great cause!
14-year-old Samuel Wood who has spent the last six summers in Gravenhurst at his family cottage on Muldrew Lake is part of the ‘Will Swim for Food’ campaign which is raising money and food for the Orangeville Food Bank.
As a team of 12, each swimmer will complete 5 km every day for a week between August 18th to 24th.
Samuel will swim most of his daily distances in Muldrew Lake. All food and cash donations made to Samuel from his northern location will be donated to the Manna Food Bank that supports Gravenhurst.
“I’m very excited to be a part of the Will Swim For Food campaign this summer and help out the Food Bank in my home town," he says. "I’m lucky to get to spend a lot of my summer up in Gravenhurst. Since this community gives me so much enjoyment I want to give back and support the Manna Food Bank. I’ll be doing most of my 5 km daily swims in Gravenhurst and I hope my cottage neighbours will join me in supporting our local Food Bank” said Samuel. The Manna Food Bank helps clients from Bracebridge, Gravenhurst and surrounding areas.
