Because Girls Can

Shields will also attempt to swim the length of Lake Ontario in a 305 km relay together with 48-year-old Nicole Mallette, 23-year-old Samantha Whiteside, 18-year-old Rebekah Boscariol, and 18-year-old Mona Sharari starting on 23 July 2013. They will swim in 2-hour legs throughout the expected 5-day non-stop unprecedented relay.

Because Girls Can is an open water swimming relay team that will attempt to swim 305 km as a charity event for Because I am a Girl, a charity that works to end gender inequality, promote girls’ rights and lift millions of girls – and everyone around them – out of poverty.
