final moments of the journey..

Ready Ready For A Cure

The Ready! Ready! For A Cure project, which took place in 2002, was undertaken by a team of amazing people.

The group challenged themselves with the demanding task of organizing all aspects of the journey, and then paddling a 40-foot dragon boat along the entire 202 km length of the Rideau Canal waterways.

The journey was completed in support of breast cancer research.
