Emily von Jentzen
On August 31, 2011, Emily von Jentzen will attempt to become the first person to swim the 55-mile length of Lake Chelan in Washington State, U.S.A.. This swim is a fundraiser for little Katelyn Roker who is battling Stage 4, high risk Neuroblastoma - and her second world open water swimming record.

Emily is a 28-year-old attorney who works for the Flathead County Attorney's Office, a triathlete and open water swimmer.

In 2010, Emily became the first person to swim the length of Montana's Flathead Lake, an unprecedented 30-mile swim. In addition to setting her first world open water swimming record, she also raised US$9,500 to help pay medical expenses for Karmyn Flanagan, a little girl battling leukemia.
