Kayaking For Kids
A Fairport man is kayaking the entire length of Canandaigua Lake to benefit the Golisano Children's Hospital at the U of R Medical Center.
Steve Clough is a financial advisor at Angelo Planning Group.
He says his son suffered from a rare condition called Kawasaki disease, and was hospitalized twice at the Golisano Children's Hospital.
And his wife Gina, when she was a child, was also treated at Strong's pediatric department.
Clough said the staff was very attentive to both his son's needs and made it as comfortable as possible for him, too.
Klough says he's been kayaking about 6 years, and one of his goals is to kayak each of the Finger Lakes.
He says he's combing his "bucket list" with a benefit for the Children's Hospital.
Clough does have any set monetary goal, but wants to raise as much money for the hospital as he can.

Meanwhile, a groundbreaking ceremony is scheduled for this morning for the new eight-story Golisano Children's Hospital.
The 245-thousand square foot facility will be attached to the Medical Center and Strong Memorial Hospital.
