Round Lantau Island Paddle
June 19, 2016
A big thank you to Katherine Lynch, Katerina Vichou and Shu Pu, the three paddlers from Hong Kong Outrigger Canoe Club and Pure Ocean Connection who paddled 70km in double and solo outrigger canoes around all of Lantau Island on June 19, 2016.
$80,000+ was raised from Lantau Island Paddle!
A target of $80,000 was set. A big thank you to all of the donors who helped them exceed their target!
100% of all funds raised were equally split and donated to three HK charities: Sailability HK, Splash Hong Kong and Plastic Free Seas. The 3 charities focus their work on ocean conservation and equal access to ocean sports and swimming activities.
