Friend of the site and fellow kayaking instructor, Christopher Lockyer is going to be attempting a 70km crossing of the Bay of Fundy again to raid money for Leukemia research. For those who might remember, Christopher attempted it back in September but high winds forced him to delay the attempt until now.

Christopher is doing the crossing in memory of good friend, Jon Kenyon who passed away back in December 2007.

Jon Kenyon

Jon Kenyon, a family friend, was diagnosed with Acute Myelogenous Leukemia (AML) in 2005. Jon and his family had an extremely difficult struggle but persevered and stayed strong through it all. Jon and I shared a passion for sea kayaking and I wanted to use this passion as a way to remember Jon and raise money for research. I am completing this paddle for all those sea kayakers like Jon who are not able to get out and enjoy the ocean and all it has to offer and to support their recovery. I have reached my initial goal of $10,000 but with Jon's passing this year, I want to increase that goal to at least $15,000. --Christopher Lockyer
