For many years the Hawkesbury Canoe Classic paddlers have supported a fantastic charity, Arrow, The Bone Marrow Transplant Foundation . Raising nearly $4.5million  and we would love to add to that so that Arrow can continue its fabulous work.

Already some paddlers have donated what would have been their entry fee, Could you please consider donating $111.00 i.e. $1 for very kilometre you didn’t have to paddle !

We would love to raise as much as possible, so please spread the word throughout the paddling community.

To donate, simply go to here.

Since 1994, when our association with Arrow, The Bone Marrow Transplant Foundation began, paddlers in the Hawkesbury Canoe Classic have donated almost $4 million million for leukaemia research and patient support services. The HCC also contributes funds to a number of supporting charitable community organisations. 


Each year participants paddle overnight to raise money for the Arrow, The Bone Marrow Transplant Foundation to give hope to people suffering from diseases treatable by bone marrow and adult stem cell transplants. Your sponsorship will support this work. Sponsor by paddler by responding to their personalised link that they send you or on the sponsorship tab at


The Hawkesbury Canoe Classic is sanctioned by PaddleNSW
