Scouts and Venturers support Leukaemia Research – Oct 2017

2nd Gordon and North St Ives Scouts, Venturers, parents, and leaders worked the Sat 28 Oct afternoon through to hours well into Sun morning to daybreak to support the 2nd Gordon Scouts-run Checkpoint India at Wisemans Ferry for the Hawkesbury Canoe Classic race.

 

 

Each year, The Arrow Foundation hosts the race for around 600 participants who paddle for up to 111km overnight to raise money for research.

2nd Gordon has run the site for well over 15 years, including site logistics, checkpoint control, and check in and out to track all paddlers.

Congratulations to our own Chris, Ric, and Nicole on your achievements in the paddle!
