Girl Swims Around Manhattan To Raise $58K For Charity


Angel More has been swimming for 10 years and she recently challenged herself to finish her longest-ever distance open water swim. The 16-year-old from California just completed the feat, swimming 28.5-miles around Manhattan and it was all for a good cause.

Her nine hour swim also included the 20 Bridges Challenge, where she passes under the 20 bridges around Manhattan. More raised over $58,000 for the nonprofit Children International, which benefits kids in poverty. She says, “The most challenging part isn’t the distance, it’s the heat.”
