Dr. Lucky Meisenheimer is the P.T. Barnum of masters swimming. Completing Lucky’s Lake swim is now nearly as cool as crossing the English Channel. If Lucky wants you to swim, eventually you will. Just ask Olympic champion Rowdy Gaines.
Rowdy was on Lucky’s Top 10 Most Wanted list — the people he most wants to accept his challenge of a swim with the Lake Monster. Every morning, Lucky — a renowned dermatologist, author, yo-yo collector and filmmaker — gets up and swims across the large lake behind his house, and he invites the world to join him.
Rowdy took him up on his invitation, and Lucky made good on his promise to donate $1,000 to YMCA’s Aquatic Center Scholarship Fund. An invigorating swim across a beautiful lake brought hundreds together and raised money for a good cause. What a way to start the day.
