Her daughter, Kaylee, follows a daily routine of medications and routines to help her lead a healthy life. She experienced her first bout of hospitalization this last winter. However, in reading Kaylee's write up, you will be inspired by her zest for life! Through her advocacy, Kaylee hopes to help all those living with cystic fibrosis lead healthy, bright and full futures.

Paddle For Gilda's Club Simcoe Muskoka

PaddleStrong was formed in 2009 by a group of paddlers that wanted more than just one race per season. Through the years we became more competitive and grew to beat our best times across the province. We merged in 2017 with the Simcoe Sirens - StrongSirens and became the reigning champions of the Barrie Festival. In 2018 we are back to our original name with our hard core paddlers ready to defend our title. PaddleStrong is coached by Scott Murray, National Team Coach and head of Pickering Dragon Boat Club. We are always recruiting and welcome new faces who want to take their paddling to the next level.
