Hawkesbury Canoe Classic Association
Annual 111km overnight paddle on the Hawkesbury River
In 1977, members of the NSW Outward Bound Ex-Students Association organised a canoe race along the Hawkesbury to raise money for medical research. That first race attracted 250 paddlers and raised $8,500 – now the race attracts more than 400 paddlers each year.
The Hawkesbury Canoe Classic Association began supporting Arrow in 1994 – since then it has raised more than $4.15 million for us, funding important medical research projects, PhD scholarships and patient support services.
