EdApp - Paddling for a purpose

Supporting Arrow Bone Marrow Transplant Foundation

Arrow Bone Marrow Transplant Foundation

Improving outcomes for bone marrow transplant patients

Every year, tens of thousands of people are diagnosed with leukaemia, lymphoma or myeloma. In many cases, a bone marrow or stem cell transplant offers the best, if not the only, prospect of recovery. At EdApp - we want to help more and more people to have access to this treatment which is why we have decided to tackle a difficult challenge and raise money to go towards the Arrow Foundation. 

So what are we doing exactly? 

Three of us EdApp team members; Darren Winterford, Elzaan Pienaar and Scott Whitaker have decided to tackle the gruelling 111km Canoe Race called the Hawkesbury Canoe Classic (HCC), which raises money purely to go towards the great work done by Arrow Bone Marrow Transplant Foundation.

Whilst the three of us have never paddled before, it's a cause we really believe in and have therefore set an ambitious target of $10,000 hoping people can support us, as we train through the cold of winter. The funds raised will go towards research, helping people in distress and to supporting nurses and PHD students further the treatment of Leukaemia. 

So far we've had many early morning starts and some 8 hour long weekend sessions in preperation. Every dollar donated towards our goal, helps us stay on the water for longer! 

If you would like to support us and help us reach our goal, please click on the 'Give Now' button above. We would appreciate any donation - even if just the equivalent to your morning coffee! The more people that know about this, the greater the impact, so please also spread the word by sharing our page with your friends and family.

Thank you in advance for your generosity, it means a lot!
