In support of Cancer Care at North York General Hospital

On August 31, 2018 Bill Kemp is planning to accomplish an extremely tough physical challenge a long distance swim across Lake Ontario, from Niagara-on-the-Lake to Toronto!

My name is Bill Kemp and I will be attempting to swim across Lake Ontario in August. I have always had a desire to take on the challenge and I wanted to do it in a meaningful way. I have chosen to raise money for North York General Hospital to help fight cancer. Cancer has impacted my family, as it has to many others. If you'd like to support, please DONATE TODAY.

My coach, Nancy Black, is guiding me through the process of getting ready for the swim. I am excited to raise money for cancer care and for the challenge of the swim.
