Crossing the Channel of Bones in Hawaii Foundation30 May 2016

Shaw and Partners Board Member and Head of Wealth Management, Earl Evans and colleague, State Manager for Victoria, Malcolm Cameron have recently paddled across a 53km open ocean channel in Hawaii, known as the “Channel of Bones” in the Maui Jim Molokai Challenge.


The pair raised an astounding $84,000 for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.


“One day I saw people paddling and I thought it would be fun to have a crack at it. One thing led to another and we have now tackled one of the biggest challenges in open ocean paddling,” said Evans.


“Throughout my career I have watched my colleagues raise money for charity by cycling up some of the hardest mountains you can find, or by running five marathons in three weeks. I have always supported them, but I have never actually done it myself. The training in the lead up to the paddle was one of the hardest things I have ever done.”


Evans said the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation is a terrific charity, one which both he and Cameron, have had a lot to do with in the past.


“Juvenile Diabetes is such an insidious disease for young children to deal with, so paddling for this cause was phenomenal motivation. It means a lot to us to be able to support people who are doing such a good job,” said Evans.
