City portage helps less fortunate
TORONTO. One hundred camp enthusiasts strapped canoes to their backs and embarked on a grueling 40-kilometre paddle and portage over the weekend for the fifth annual Canoe Heads for Kids event, which raised $60,000 to send kids from low-income families to summer camps through Amici Camping Charity.

Paddling for dollars
- The money raised in the event will send 60 children to camp for two weeks.
- Once Amici sponsors a child, it will continue to send that child to camp for two weeks every year, as long as the financial need is still there.
- Combined with its other fundraising initiatives, Amici will send 150 children to camp for two weeks in 2012
