We encourage all paddlers to attempt to raise in excess of the minimum amount.

Note: Sponsorship funds cannot be refunded as they are a tax deductible charitable donation.

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
