The four — Kathy Beirne, Shawn Delplain, Howie Ruddell and Todd Clayton — walked ashore four-abreast and smiling after completing the swim.
They took off from the eastern shore of the lake at 6:12 a.m.
The four made the swim to call attention for donations to the Captain Joseph House Foundation, a Port Angeles nonprofit to create a bed-and-breakfast-style respite for families of service members who died in action.
