Swim For Dreams was a benevolent fundraiser intended to help children
This two part documentary tells the story of 15 year old Ashleigh Beacham; a young woman of phenomenal strength and courage who swam across Lake Ontario on August 18, 2013 in order to raise $10,000.00 for the Make A Wish Foundation of Southwestern Ontario so they could send a five year old boy with leukemia to Disney World.
Our crew accompanied Ashleigh across the lake, shooting mostly from a zodiac inflatable boat.
Our crew captured all of the key moments, from desperation to exhilaration
More than 18 hours after launching herself into the cold waters of Lake Ontario, in the dead of night from Niagara-On-The-Lake, Ashleigh Beacham successfully completed her Swim For Dreams as she finished at Marilyn Bell Park in Toronto.
This documentary was produced as a co-production of 3B Solutions and Five Points Media
