I’m Issie, I’m 16 years old, and this summer I will be attempting to swim across Okanagan Lake from Peachland to Penticton (approximately 32km). This swim will be in memory of my grandma, Joan Wickett, who passed away in March 2022 from Alzheimer’s disease. I will be raising funds for The Alzheimer Society of Canada.
