Andy Fauset and his son Nick are back at it again this year with their 2nd Annual Paddle For A Cause, kayaking the Trent-Severn Waterway from Trenton to Peterborough to raise awareness and fundraise in support of Prostate Cancer Canada—Prostate Cancer Awareness Week is September 16th to 23rd.
Last September , Andy and Nick paddled the other half of the
Trent-Severn from Port Severn to Peterborough’s Silver Bean Café. That
14-day kayak journey successfully raised $7,100 for Prostate Cancer
Canada’s research and education programs.
The pair have both known individuals affected by prostate cancer, and wanted to do their part toward supporting research and spreading awareness. “For my father and I, the fundraiser represents an opportunity to spend time together doing something we love, while raising awareness of a prominent, yet preventable health concern affecting men,” says Nick. “Some sons don’t have the opportunity to do this with their fathers because of diseases like prostate cancer."
and Nick encourage any paddlers to join them for any length of time on
their Paddle for a Cause 2013 journey. There will also be a fundraiser
finale hosted at the Silver Bean Café on September 29th, at noon, open to the Peterborough community.
