A 14-year-old St. Catharines girl is aiming to swim her way in to the record books.

Just before 7 pm Sunday night, Trinity Arsenault set out from Queen's Royal Park in Niagara-on-the-Lake for Marilyn Bell Park in Toronto.

If Arsenault can complete the 52 km journey, she will be come the youngest person ever to swim across Lake Ontario.  

The record is currently held by Norfolk County's Annaleise Carr, who made the trek in the summer of 2012 when she was also 14. But Arsenault's birthday in May makes her about two months younger than Carr was when she completed the feat.

Besides bragging rights, Arsenault is swimming to raise money and awareness for Canadian Tire's Jumpstart program, which helps families in financial need with the cost of participating in organized sports.

Trinity Arsenault's mother also swam across Lake Ontario in the summer of 2011.

Kevin Jack, a host with Newstalk 1010's sister station 610 CKTB in St. Catharines was in Niagara-on-the-Lake as Arsenault began her journey.
