KENOSHA -- While most of you may spend the day preparing for a Packers party, the women's polo team at Carthage College finished a 12-hour "Tread-A-Thon" in their swimming pool.

"It shows we can do what anybody else can do, just with longer hair," said Jane Eckles, Women's Polo Guard.

This effort raised money for the team to travel this season. A portion of their efforts Sunday will go to the Boys & Girls Club of Kenosha.

They made it look easy texting, using Facetime and even reading a book while treading water!
