Tam Fook Chee paddled overnight 111km receiving donations in the name of ITF Taekwon-Do
3rd Nov 2011   12:44
Senior Master Tam Fook Chee in the name if ITF has 6 years in a row taken part in the 111km kayak paddle to raise fund for the very important reason.
All monies are donated to the Arrow Bone Marrow Foundation; a charitable foundation that raises money for leukaemia research and provides support to people undergoing leukaemia treatment.
For more than fifteen years the Arrow Bone Marrow Transplant Foundation has financed the Australian Bone Marrow Recipient Register, a unit employing three health professionals who collect, collate and distribute transplant patient data across 37 hospitals in Australia and New Zealand, consolidating this information into an annual report that is used for reference purposes by contributing hospitals, drug companies and other relevant persons in the field.
In past years the Arrow Bone Marrow Transplant Foundation, with funds donated from the Hawkesbury Canoe Classic, has provided financial support to PhD students in the St. Vincent\'s Institute researching Graft Versus Host Disease, the major cause of death in post transplant patients. Funding a Senior Research Scientist in the Haematology / Stem Cell Transplant Unit, St Vincent\'s Hospital is the Arrow\'s newest research initiative.
Leukaemia patients can also use the Foundation\'s internet facilities to undertake their own research, monitor trends and developments in research or speak to other patients through the Foundation\'s chat line facility.
This year Senior Master Tam came in 3rd place in 12 hours and 30min in this charity race. Senior Master Tam would like to thanks everyone who has supported him in every way the did. The total fund raised by all paddlers is AUD$182632.00
