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