iCrowdNewswire - Jun 7, 2016




Pure Ocean Fundraising Paddle Around Lantau Island

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 $60,000 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:


Provides sailing training and racing for Hong Kong’s disabled community, including those with physical and mental challenges – See http://www.sailability.org.hk.


Conducts free learn-to-swim and water safety courses for targeted communities in HK who may not have access or financial resources for swim lessons – seehttp://www.splashhongkong.org.


Focuses on education and action to reduce plastic marine pollution by empowering people locally with solutions for this global problem – seehttp://www.plasticfreeseas.org.

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: shu@avra.cc. 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!

Katherine, Katerina & Shu
