Scouts to support Charity for the 15th year during Oct 2016

On 29-30 Oct 2016, 2nd Gordon Scouts shall be supporting the Hawkesbury Canoe Classic (111km), and new this year, the concurrent Wisemans Dash (65km). This year is the 40th anniversary for the charity event of which around 600 paddlers participate on a night paddle in kayaks and canoes along the Hawkesbury River. Glenn Brown, our group’s dedicated Scout Leader, along with a number of senior Scouts, Leaders and parents, has led the management of one of the course check points for the past 10 years. Last year the charity event raised $153,000 for The Arrow Foundation which does Leukaemia research and provides patient support services.
