KFAC - Victoria Aug 10

KFAC Victoria needs help. Don Lowther has been working flat out to make the first KFAC Victoria a success but he's caring the entire project on his back.

If you are a reader of this blog and are thinking of making a contribution to the Round Isle of Man cancer fund raiser, and if you can get to Victoria, why not make a contribution to Don's project instead.

Don's project needs paddlers more then the my Isle of Man project needs more donations. So if you live in the area and want to take part in a one day cancer fund raising project, and get in a paddle, send Don an email at

You can also register as a volunteer. Don needs people to make Kayak for a Cure™ Victoria happen. Volunteers won't be asked to raise funds, but you can if you want.

The days paddle will start from Verdier Park between the Brentwood Bay Lodge and Spa and Brentwood Bay Ferry terminal.The group will paddle from Brentwood Bay down Saanich Inlet to the Goldstream Boathouse area and back again, with stops along the way for lunch and leg stretches. There's a short course for those who don't want to paddle the full length.

KFAC is also looking for sponsors so that every registered paddler receives an official Kayak for a Cure™ T-shirt and water bottle as well as other goodies.The paddle will end with BBQ at the park!

100% of KFAC's net proceeds are donated to the Canadian Cancer Society, The Canadian Cancer Society provides leading financial support for cancer research and delivers community-based support programs and prevention information for all types of cancer. For more information visit www.cancer.ca

Each paddler is asked to try to raise funds for the Canadian Cancer Society. Don will show you how to set up an online page to make this easy.

Donations can be made Online through the Canadian Cancer Society's Official Kayak for a Cure Victoria page, by cheque payable to Canadian Cancer Society, or by cash. Donations are tax deductible?

Don is also looking for local business/ corporate sponsorship to help make his event the best it can be.

If you can't participate but would still like to make a donation to the Round Isle of Man fund raiser for cancer research cut and paste this link into your browser enter your donation and follow the instructions. You'll get a receipt in your in basket.
