WOWSA, Woman of the Year, Annaleise Carr

It was announced on January 1, 2013 that fourteen year old Annaleise Carr of Canada was voted the 2012 World Open Water Swimmer, Woman of the Year, Award.  Her story is another very inspirational one.....she swam across Lake Ontario to raise money for children with cancer.  She raised over $230,000 in one day.  I'm in awe of her accomplishment.  I hope her story is presented to the Disney Corporation for a movie... My young grandchildren enjoy having a bedtime story read to them each night. I told them the story of young Annaleise and they were mesmerized about her adventurous swim and thoughtfulness to help sick children.  Congratulations, Annaleise!
