Scouts and Venturers support HCC and Leukaemia Research – Oct 2017

2nd Gordon and North St Ives Scouts, Venturers, parents and Leaders worked from Saturday 28th Oct afternoon through to well into Sunday morning past daybreak to support the 2nd Gordon Scouts-run Checkpoint India at Wisemans Ferry for the Hawkesbury Canoe Classic race.



Each year, up to 450 participants test their endurance in the Hawkesbury Canoe Classic and paddle up to 111km overnight to raise money for research by The Arrow Foundation.

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

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