One of the easiest and most enjoyable ways to help protect your watershed is to simply experience it. Jump in the lake and connect with it. It’s no surprise that when we found out about Toronto Island local, Kathleen McDonnell – who swam in the lake every day for a year, all 365 days – we had to get in touch with her.
Some of the greatest adventures are experienced when we least expect it. So if you’re looking for some inspiration to get yourself excited for the upcoming Toronto Island Lake Swim, look no further. Madhu Nagaraja swam in his first open-water race in 2003. Since then, Madhu has taken on some of the greatest open water challenges that mother nature has to offer – including swimming across Lake Ontario.
After learning about the possibility of contracting illnesses and infections from a trip to the beach, many people ask us if it “safer” to swim in pools. And you might be surprised by what we found out.
