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

Propelled by 20 paddlers, guided by a steersperson and kept in rhythm by a drummer seated at the bow, these 1500 lb boats create waves in the water sport 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 life time.

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.
