The trio finished an about 80-mile paddle board crossing of Lake Michigan from Wisconsin to Michigan, finishing in less time than they predicted despite high waves along the way. They left Milwaukee's McKinley Beach on Sunday morning.

MUSKEGON, MICH. — A trio of young adults has successfully paddle-boarded across Lake Michigan from Wisconsin to Michigan, but charitable donations are still rolling in.

Twenty-one-year-old Ginny Melby tells MLive.com (http://bit.ly/12NxDTF ) for a story Wednesday that she and her fellow paddle-boarders have raised more than $7,000 in donations. Melby and brothers Craig and Trent Masselink hoped to raise $1,000 for Restore International, a charity focusing on social justice issues in Uganda.

Melby say they are still receiving money.

The Masselinks and Melby expected the 80-mile trip that began July 7 in Milwaukee's McKinley Beach would take 30 hours. They arrived near their families' cottages in Norton Shores, near Muskegon, in just over 23 hours.

They took turns paddling while the other two rode in a 40-foot support boat with family aboard.
