A long swim in honor of Mom


Rosemount native Eric Young will attempt to swim across Lake Belle Taine on Saturday in honor of his mother, who passed away from Parkinson's disease in September. The swim is a fundraising effort for the Parkinson's Disease Foundation. Young, 40, also hopes to raise awareness for the disease.

Young, who now lives in Atlanta, GA, has frequented Lake Belle Taine, near Nevis, since he was born. His great grandfather was the first to build a cabin on the lake, back in 1902.
