Saint John Man Swims Northumberland Strait
There's no doubt it's difficult to swim the Northumberland Strait, but not nearly as hard as coping with the loss of a child. In February, Chris Dobbin's five-year old son Jack died suddenly from the flu. Since then, the Saint Johner and his family have set up an organization to help kids with special needs, called the Jack in the Clouds Foundation. Chris Dobbin swam the Strait from New Brunswick to PEI yesterday to raise money for the foundation.
