Sage Dentremont a rising senior at MDI High School is going to swim from Swan's Island to the Bass Harbor Ferry Terminal on Tuesday, September 1st. The 6 mile swim is part of Sage's Senior Exhibition Project at MDI High School and she's raising money via a gofundme page to pay for swim lessons for Swan's Island children at the Downeast Family YMCA

Sage's goal is to raise $5000 via her gofundme page. To donate click HERE.

She is heading into the water at 9 a.m. on Tuesday, September 1st. If all goes well, she'll come ashore at the Bass Harbor Ferry Terminal around 1 p.m. It would be great if there was a huge crowd to greet her!
