Premier Darrell Dexter today, July 23, congratulated Kristen Roe of Halifax on becoming the first Nova Scotian to successfully swim the English Channel. “To complete what is referred to as the Mount Everest of marathon swimming is a remarkable accomplishment by an outstanding Nova Scotian,” said Premier Dexter. “We are all inspired by Kristen’s drive and determination not only to swim the channel, but also to raise awareness about HIV and AIDS in Africa.” Ms. Roe did the swim to help raise $100,000 for the Nova Scotia Gambia Association and Stephen Lewis Foundation. She crossed the English Channel on July 22, arriving in Calais, France 17 hours after departing Drover Harbour in England.
