Fighting as one team for the same goal

Each year, Manitobans from all walks of life compete in the Manitoba Dragon Boat Festival. The Dragon Boat Festival is a three-day competition, which brings community together to raise funds in support of CancerCare Manitoba Foundation and the Children’s Hospital Foundation of Manitoba.

Propelled by 20 paddlers, guided by a steersperson and kept in rhythm by a drummer seated at the bow, these 1500lb boats create waves in the watersport community. Racing against two to three other teams per heat, each race lasts only a few minutes. The impact you can make though will last a lifetime.

Your fundraising ensures innovative research which leads to more discoveries every year as well as exceptional patient care and treatment. These funds are giving hope for more tomorrows for Manitoba kids and their families living with cancer.

Between 50 and 60 children will be diagnosed with cancer in Manitoba this year and over 80 per cent will be cured. This is incredible and gives us tremendous reason for hope. By registering today, YOU can be part of the community that moves the needle to 100 per cent.

Your commitment has such an impact on Manitoba families on their journey with cancer. You can continue to make the future brighter and more hopeful. You can improve the quality of treatment, care, and outcomes for these special patients.
