Win trophies and raise money for local cancer patients. Among the fun festivities will be an opening ceremony, three heats of races, the moving Carnation Ceremony for cancer survivors and their families and the closing medal ceremony. Teams will be fundraising as part of the competition. Individuals and teams that raise the most will be handsomely rewarded! Proceeds from fundraising helps fuel DragonBoat Beaufort's two pronged mission. The first to fund ongoing activities of DragonBoat Beaufort's cancer survivor teams; the second is to strengthen outreach programs of cancer survivor-focused grants, support and counseling.
Race fee will be determined by how we register. A cancer survivor team must have at least 8 cancer survivors in the boat during each race.
