BATON ROUGE - Marathon swimmer Tim Root will try to swim across Lake Pontchartrain to raise money for Our Lady of the Lake Children's Hospital.

The swim, more than 25 miles from Madisonville to New Orleans, will take place in November.

Root says he wants to honor the patients at the hospital and their difficult situations.

He will be supported by a crew led by his wife Amanda. They will have an escort boat and kayaks.

Donations can be made at OLOL's website, and more information about the swim is available on Facebook.
