Shaw and Partners proud sponsor of the Melanoma Institute Australia Paddle Fundraiser Foundation06 May 2019

Shaw and Partners was the proud sponsor of the Melanoma Institute Australia Paddle Fundraiser last Saturday 4th May, in association with Sydney Harbour Surf Club.

 

Amateur paddlers, bid for the opportunity to race with the legends of the sport including current World Champion ocean surf-ski paddler, Cory Hill, Australian Ironman Surf Life Saving Champion, Shannon Eckstein and ex-Olympian kayaker, Jim Walker amongst the pros.

 

The fundraising initiative raised ~$25,000 with the support of the Shaw and Partners Foundation which matched, dollar for dollar, all donations up to a cap of $10,000.

 

Melanoma is the deadliest of skin cancers and the most common cancer in Australia for those between 15-39. It claims the life of one Australian every five hours. When caught early at a regular skin check melanoma has a 90% survival rate. The Shaw and Partners Foundation was delighted to be involved with such a worthwhile cause that raises awareness and funds research into treatment.
