Andrea Chelkowski, 35, took four hours to swim from Dodges Ferry to Lauderdale yesterday. […]

“I grew up at Lauderdale and have spent so much time in the water surfing, fishing and sailing with my Dad. I always thought of swimming across the bay, so it was great to do it as a fundraiser,” Mrs Chelkowski said
