Seventeen swimmers began the 6.7 mile swim of Lake Bemidji from the Bemidji Town and Country Club to Green Mill on Friday morning. This was part of the Third annual Swim for a Cause fundraiser for the Bemidji High School swim team. The money raised is matched by the Forward Foundation and the event raised more than $8,000 last year.
