The HC Canoeing team is once again organizing their unique, once-in-a-year event – don’t miss it! Here is their message:


Hi Hwa Chong!!!

The Hwa Chong Canoeing Team will be organizing the 4th edition of the 24 hour static kayaking challenge held from the 27thMay to 28th May.  This year, we will be taking a bold leap by having our event at 2 venues. We will be starting the event at the College Inner Plaza at 8am on 27 May before ending off at the High School Clock Tower the following day during Combined Sports Meet!


Our beneficiary will be the Muscular Dystrophy Association Singapore (MDAS) and we will be raising funds to subsidise the transport cost of 4 needy students with muscular dystrophy in order to allow them to attend school and MDAS programs. These students require specialized vehicles for transportation and costs can amount to $1200 a month.


Thus, we will be selling shirts to raise funds for them. This year, our shirts come in 8 attractive colours and each shirt is prized only at $12. In addition, there are Botak Jones vouchers and an info sheet on muscular dystrophy slotted in each shirt package! Seeing that our event is held during CSM, students will be allowed to wear any of the 8 wonderful colours on CSM. So what are you waiting for? Hurry up and order one through your CTs or at our booth if you haven’t done so!


Hold on that’s not all, this year the team challenge is back and you can take part by forming teams of 3-5 and paddle your hearts out to clock the greatest distance in 15 minutes! The top 3 teams from the open and Women category will earn themselves attractive Island creamery vouchers! Furthermore, we will be introducing the all NEW exciting Instagram challenge. The first 100 posts with a picture of yourself (or with a group of friends) in our event t-shirts will win one scoop of delicious Island Creamery ice cream per post. All you have to do to participate in this give-away is to add #hci24 in that post! Furthermore, the top 10 creative photos in the event t-shirt will win not one but TWO scoops of ice-cream so take out your smart phones and take part in the challenge!
