NEWS LINE: Boy Butter Swims to Canada for Gay Elderly

Eyal Feldman swims to Canada Cape Vincent, NY. 09-09-08 -- Boy Butter Lubricants owner Eyal Feldman, 30, did a solo marathon open water swim across the St. Lawrence River at Cape Vincent, NY to Wolf Island in Canada and back, a round-trip distance of almost 6 miles. Traveling at a steady 1.8 knots (2.1 mph) Feldman swam for just under 3 hours and had raised $1000 for an organization that is close to his heart, S.A.G.E. (Seniors Active in a Gay Environment) is the world's oldest and largest non-profit agency dedicated to serving and advocating for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender seniors.

"I have been volunteering for the elderly for a couple of years now, it is incredibly important socially and personally rewarding as well," Feldman says, "It is amazing to help others in such a direct and intimate way, such social contacts and services are simply vital for the elderly. By combining my two loves, swimming and volunteer work I am able to create an exciting worthwhile adventure."

The Swim took place at Lazy Acres in Cape Vincent NY on Sunday September 9th 2008 at 9:15 am and was completed at 12:45 pm. For video of the swim please visit: http://boybutter.blogspot.com/
