Bridgette Hobart Janesczko successfully completed her ninth and last Finger Lake in New York during her 9-stage 156-mile charity swim for Nazareth College.

It was a lifetime goal for the extraordinarily busy company owner and open water swimming race director from Lake Hopatcong, New Jersey. Her swim promoted Nazareth College with a focus on its new Wellness and Rehabilitation Institute. “We’ve wrapped up all 9 lakes in a swim season, and what a blast doing so. I had the best crew, community support and just and overall wonderful summer and really loved swimming all the lakes,” she explained to Gwendolyn Craig of the Auburn Citizen.
