Kayaking for a cure
Niagara Falls Review

"I've been kayaking since I was 9 and would kayak every morning," the 18-year-old said.
"It has always been a dream of mine to go across the lake to Toronto."
The McMaster University business student plans make his dream a reality this summer.
While it will be personal challenge for the Laura Secord Secondary School graduate, the 52 kilometre trek will also be in support of the Canadian Cancer Society.
Robinson hopes to raise $10,000 for the non-profit agency from his Kayak for the Cure Niagara.
He hopes to take to the water sometime between Aug. 12 and 16, depending on weather conditions.
"It's going to be pretty rough - those waves can reach eight feet - but I'm already training so I'll be ready by the time it comes."
He plans to leave from Queen's Royal Park in Niagara-on-the-Lake at sunset and end at the mouth of the Humber River in Toronto.
He expects his journey will take between 12 and 16 hours.
