Hawkesbury Canoe Classic Association
The Hawkesbury Canoe Classic is an annual 111km overnight paddle on the Hawkesbury River from Windsor to Brooklyn. In 1977, members of the NSW Outward Bound Ex-Students Association organised a canoe race along the river they had paddled during their course to help the community by raising money for medical research. That first race attracted 250 paddlers and raised $8,500. Now the race attracts more than 400 paddlers, and has raised in excess of $3.4 million for medical research and patient support services since its association with Arrow commenced in 1994.
The HCC's support has been essential for many important initiatives including the Australasian Bone Marrow Transplant Recipient Registry; the Arrow/HCC Research Scientist position; Arrow/HCC PhD Scholarships; purchasing medical research equipment; Arrow House and many other important medical research projects.
