Paddling With Purpose

In memory of two friends lost to cancer, Scott Prevost of Elliot Lake, Ont., and his canoe partner Tom Wilson, set out to paddle from Jackfish River to the Nipigon River to Batchawana Bay almost ten years ago. They raised awareness for the disease and also had an incredible experience on the beautiful waters and shores of Ontario. Read their story in the July issue of More of Our Canada.
