Toronto to Montreal Solo Kayak Journey 2

In about 9 hours, I’ll be departing on a solo kayak journey from Toronto to Montreal to raise money for Noah’s Ark home for children in the Philippines. Noah’s Ark provides a temporary home for malnourished children; providing food, shelter and education until the children can be returned to their families or adopted.

The kayak journey also provides me an opportunity for an adventure and a challenge that I’m very much looking forward to. I’ll be setting up camp along the shores of Lake Ontario and the St. Lawrence River while I progress to my end goal: Montreal.

I’ll be updating this article on a daily basis from my Blackberry to let everyone know how I’m progressing. I’m expecting to arrive in Montreal in 10-12 days – depending on weather.

If you’d like to support this cause, please e-mail your pledge amount to jim_schwartz9@yahoo.com or show your support by joining my Facebook group. I’ll also be providing updates on Twitter.

    It’s a challenging adventure. Though it looks like you could handle it with the proper gear.
