MDI Senior Swims 6-Mile Ferry Route to Benefit Swan’s Island Youth

by | Sep 8, 2020 | Island Outreach, News

NORTHEAST HARBOR, ME — I wanted to bring this news story to your attention. Tuesday, September 1, Sage Dentremont, a current senior at MDI High School and a Swan’s Island resident, swam six miles — Swan’s Island to Bass Harbor — to raise money for other Swan’s Island kids to take swim lessons at the Ellsworth YMCA.

The $10,000-plus Sage raised will help pay for ferry tickets and swim fees at the YMCA.

Sage is an amazing young person. She attended the Mission’s middle school retreat while still an island student, and as a high school student, she participated on the retreat Q & A panel. She is just a great kid!

Here is the Fox News story and video.

I wanted to celebrate her accomplishment and generosity towards others. To add to Sage’s fundraising visit her GoFundMe page.
