DAY 8 (page 2 of 2): Saturday, August 15, 2009

The final day's journey begins.

< back | journal >

Welcome back to our ninth consecutive year of Kayaking for Cancer!

We reach Black Rapids at 11:30 and stop there for lunch and a chance to rest in the shade. It's really hot today. Today's lunch is provided by Robinson's Your Independent Grocer of Manotick. Thanks again.

After lunch Kevin asks everyone in the group to write down the amount of money that they have raised this year, and that amount together with the money in the donation bucket adds up to $41,500.00. This brings our nine year total to $316,500.00. A very impressive total for such a small group of people.

We continue down the Rideau Canal, trying to stay in the shade as much as possible, and we arrive at the top of the Ottawa Locks at 4:30. The 2009 version of Kayaking for Cancer is over. It seems like the last eight days have just flown by. Look for us again in August 2010.



Thank you ground crew for everything you do.
