Saskatchewan teenager swims English Channel

SWIFT CURRENT, Sask. - A 19-year-old from Swift Current, Sask., has successfully swum across the English Channel to raise money for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation of Canada.

The news was announced on Twitter by the City of Swift Current, which congratulated Meghan Chisholm with the hashtag #proud.

Chisholm swam competitively for years growing up and is now a lifeguard, swimming instructor and coaching assistant for the Swift Current Barracudas swim team.

She has said she always had a goal to do a major long-distance swim and that teaming up with the foundation gave her the extra motivation to train for a good cause.

As of Tuesday night, she had raised $8, 552 for the foundation, about a third of her goal of $25,000.
