The 41st Classic held in October last year raised a huge $140,000 to fund medical research. Funds raised will allow Arrow to continue its funding of a research scientist at the Blood Stem Cell and Cancer Unit at St Vincent’s Hospital, Sydney; Arrow/HCC PhD Scholarship recipients, and new medical research projects including Dr. John Moore’s phase II trial of haploidentical peripheral blood

The 111km overnight paddle has raised almost $4 million since its association with Arrow began in 1994, and continues to fund vital medical research thanks to the commitment of HCC paddlers, land crew, committee members and volunteers involved in the annual event.

It’s time to start training as an individual or a team for the 42nd Classic (111 km) or 3rd Wisemans Dash (65 km). We encourage corporate teams to take part in the challenge so please contact Arrow at info@arrow.org.au if your company is interested in getting involved this year.
