[ut_icon icon="fa-quote-left" size="fa-2x" align="alignleft" color="#000000"]Mission accompished. Dean Bragonier set out July 11 for a swim around Martha's Vineyard to raise awareness about dyslexia. Twenty-seven swimming legs and 50 nautical miles later, Mr. Bragonier completed the circumnavigation Sunday at State Beach. The Round-the-Island swim raised more than $150,000 for NoticeAbility, Mr. Bragonier's non-profit that creates dyslexic-friendy learning tools for middle school-aged children. In keeping with the spirit of the swim, in which Mr. Bragonier was accompanied and cheered on by members of the community, well-wishers were on hand Sunday to celebrate the end of the swim — and even join Mr. Bragonier in the water.
