DRAGON BOAT Golden Rules
- Never interchange the word “rowing” for “paddling.” Remember, you are paddling a dragon boat!
- Always, always, always paddle in sync with the lead paddlers; that’s why they’re called “the strokes”!
- If you get splashed, splash back. We like to keep things even on the boat.
Team Fundraising TIPS
Attention Paddlers–WE NEED YOUr Help to REACH OUR $200,000 FUNDRAISING GOAL
Funds raised from the Festival benefit the programs of Dragonheart Vermont and other cancer non-profit organizations in our area. This year, we are excited to help launch the new Integrative Therapies program at the Vermont Cancer Center. This program will provide acupuncture, yoga, massage, mindfulness and other therapies to cancer patients and survivors to help control pain, fatigue and other side effects while improving psychological outlook and quality of life.
Dragonheart Vermont is a breast cancer survivor and supporter dragon boat organization that carries on year-round programs to support and empower breast cancer survivors. We also pride ourselves on the importance of breast cancer awareness and community-giving and have given back over $850,000 in the past 12 years.
