UPEI congratulates fifth-year student Suzanne Nicholson who conquered the Northumberland Strait on Sunday, August 18. The UPEI swim team member created the fundraiser in hopes of raising $10,000 for the team—and she exceeded that goal!

After raising close to $11,000, Suzanne set out at 7:45 am for the 13+ km swim which took her about 5.5 hours to complete.
