Montreal Is Hosting A Dragon Boat Festival

For the 10th year in a row, the Fuller Landau Cedars CanSupport "Rain or Shine" Dragon Boat Race and Festival will be taking place. On September 19th, from 7am to 3pm, head on over to the waterfront at promenade Pere-Marquette for what it sure to be an amazing day of boat-race watching and festivities.

Teams of 20 paddlers have signed up throughout the year to participate, with each team raising a minimum of $12,500. They will soon battle it out to see who really are the best dragon boat racers of them all. Awards will be given out for things like Best Team Name and Best Team Spirit, and of course there will be some great fundraising prizes.

All funds raised raised from the festival will go towards the Cedars Cancer Foundation, which provides free psychological and emotional support, information, and financial assistance to cancer patients and their families at the MUHC. So not only will you have a day filled with fun, but you can help out a really great cause.
