Paddlers donate $153,000.00 to Arrow Foundation

At the 2015 Presentation Dinner , the Hawkesbury Canoe Classic Association was able to hand over a cheque for $150,000 to the Arrow Bone Marrow Transplant Foundation. These funds, plus a direct donation of a further $3000.00, came as a result of fundraising efforts by paddlers in this year’s Classic.
This is a fantastic result although we should be able to do much better next year, when the 40th Anniversary clsic will be held.
A further $20,000 was donated to the community organisations, such as Marine Rescue, SES and the VRA (WICEN) who support the event on the night.
Great work all round.
