2018 Dragon Boat Festival

Dragon Boxers

The 2018 FMG Manitoba Dragon Boat Festival will take place at The Forks, on September 7, 8 & 9.  The Dragon Boxers are committed to making a difference for Manitoba kids living with cancer, and we are proud to be fundraising over the past 11 years for the Manitoba Dragon Boat Festival in support of CancerCare Manitoba Foundation and the Children's Hospital Foundation of Manitoba.

We're paddling for the kids – Manitoba kids with cancer. We're especially excited because all the funds we raise will stay right here in our province to help provide research, care and support for our littlest Manitobans in their very big battle.

CancerCare Manitoba Foundation is the only charitable organization exclusively fundraising for CancerCare Manitoba. While CancerCare Manitoba works in partnership with Manitoba Health, some programs and services may not be eligible for government funding. CancerCare Manitoba Foundation raises funds to bridge this gap and help deliver the best research, patient care, treatment.

Sixty children and young adolescents will be diagnosed with cancer this year in Manitoba, while about 100 additional children and young adolescents will continue their treatments.Thanks to fundraising efforts for research and pediatric clinical trials, approximately 80 per cent are cured. An incredible feat, but we still need your help to reach 100 per cent.

Your commitment allows CancerCare Manitoba and the Children's Hospital of Manitoba to continue supporting cutting-edge cancer research and improve the quality of treatment, care and outcomes for our young patients.

By supporting us with a donation, you are helping to support CancerCare Manitoba in its work to change lives and change the course of cancer in our province. Every donation - no matter how big or small - is critical as we work together to stay ahead of this disease.

Thank you for your consideration... Paddles Up!!!
