Now is the time to form teams and get registered! You will need twenty paddlers, one drummer, and three or four alternates (not required). Each team will designate a captain to coordinate the team. Teams can be sponsored by a corporation or individual team members can contribute to the registration fee of $1,500. “We wanted to do something that was different and new and it was important to us that is was also focused on health and wellness. The beauty of dragon boat racing is that even non-athletes can participate, and it truly is a lot of fun,” said Scott Buchanan, CarePartners Foundation CEO. The public is encouraged to attend and cheer on teams.
Buchanan states that “All proceeds from this event will benefit vulnerable people in our communities. CarePartners Foundation helps strengthen hospice, programs for grieving children, and support for fragile seniors, among so many other services. Teams can even designate the money they raise for those causes closest to their hearts.”
