Apart from the huge disappointment for paddlers and organisers stemming from the cancellation of this year’s Classic, the biggest loser has been the fantastic charity that paddlers have supported for so many years, Arrow, The Bone Marrow Transplant Foundation (arrow.org.au)
Over time, paddlers have raised in excess of $4.5million for Arrow and the HCC Association would love to be able to add to that amount so that Arrow can continue its fabulous work.
Already, some paddlers have donated their entry fee, but in a call to all paddlers please consider a donation of $111 i.e. $1 for every kilometre you didn’t have to paddle !
We would love to raise $50,000 so please consider donating any amount and please spread the word throughout the paddling community.
