The eighteenth annual Kayaking for Cancer event is now underway.
On Saturday morning August 11th 20 kayaks launched into the Rideau Canal beginning our 8 day journey to Ottawa. Follow along using our Travel Route or Journal pages. By the end of this year's event we will have paddled 141 days covering over 3,600 kilometres.
Over the past 17 years we have managed to raise over $670,000 for The Canadian Cancer Society, and we're not done yet.
We want to thank all the sponsors and donors that make this event possible. We couldn't do it without your support.
Please make an online
donation right now through the CCS web site
or call toll-free 1-888-939-3333.
We and all those affected by cancer appreciate
