On June 19th, 3 outrigger paddlers from Hong Kong outrigger Canoe Club and Pure Ocean Connection will paddle 70km in solo and double outrigger canoes around all of Lantau Island. A target of $80,000 has been set.
100% of all funds raised will be equally split and donated to these 3 HK charities that focus their work on ocean conservation and equal access to ocean sports and activities:
SAILABILITY HONG KONG

About Pure Ocean Connection
The paddlers of Pure Ocean Connection share their love of ocean sports to raise money supporting a clean ocean environment & equal access to sports & play activities for all HK kids.
We would be very grateful if you could take a moment to donate even just a few HK dollars to support these worthwhile Hong Kong charities.
If you require an official receipt for tax deduction purpose, please leave us a note through GoGetFunding, or send an email to: [email protected] We will arrange once the fund-raising campaign is completed.
Finally, please note that we've set the donation currency in HKD. So please donate by entering HKD amounts. That said, it is totally OK for non-HK residents to donate - Just make sure you enter the amount you intend for in HKD. USD to HKD conversion is about 1 to 8.
Thank you for your generous support!
