Saturday, August 27, 2022

On Saturday, August 27, help support Lakeshore General Hospital’s Oncology Clinic through this unique team-building activity. Teams of rowers will take the waters of the Lachine Canal and experience the adrenaline and thrill of a race!

Teams consist of 21 paddlers. Each participant is required to raise a minimum of $250 and prizes will be awarded for the top individual fundraisers!

Dragon boat racing requires no previous skill. It is easy to learn, promotes teamwork, health and exercise, and is an activity where men and women compete side-by-side toward the same goal. Regardless of age or physical condition, once a paddler is in stroke, they are contributing to their team.

At the event, we encourage all teams to tailgate! Get into the spirit of the event – bring a tent, food, and drinks, and have a blast cheering on all the teams. There will also be a prize for the best-dressed team so get creative – no costume is too silly for this event. Don’t forget to also decorate your tent space!

With over 1,000 cancer patients treated annually, funds raised will help provide state-of-the-art equipment required to best treat and care for our ever-growing West Island community.

Team of 21 individual paddlers:             raise $250 per person

Corporate Teams of 21:                              $7,500
