Crossing for a Cause
On August 21, 2015 Michael McIsaac, a corporate lawyer at WeirFoulds LLP, is planning to accomplish one of the toughest physical challenges in the world – a long distance swim across Lake Ontario!
His goal is to complete a sanctioned marathon swim across Lake Ontario commencing in Niagara-on-the-Lake and ending at Marilyn Bell Park, Toronto.
His cause is the Douglas Wright Foundation, a registered Canadian charity devoted to fighting melanoma in Canada. All funds raised in this campaign will be given to the Douglas Wright Foundation. Tax receipts will be issued for all donations received by the Douglas Wright Foundation.
Help Michael swim across Lake Ontario and support the fight against melanoma by making donation or by sponsoring one of Michael’s fifty-one kilometres!
