The fourth instalment of Hwa Chong Institution's (HCI) 24-hour Static Kayaking Challenge was flagged off at 8am today by Singapore Canoeing Federation's (SCF) adviser, Minister of State for National Development, Mr Desmond Lee.

Supported by SCF as part of its Canoeing Cares initiative, the event is held at HCI's Bukit Timah campus till tomorrow.

It seeks to raise funds and awareness in support of the Muscular Dystrophy Association (Singapore).

The event has raised more than $60,000 for the association over the last three years, and the organisers aim to raise another $25,000 this year through pledged donations and sale of event T-shirts.
