Dragonboat Beaufort is hosting the 5th annual DragonBoat Race Day at Henry C. Chambers Waterfront Park downtown on the Beaufort River in America's Happiest Seaside Community, Beaufort, SC
The exciting dragon boat races will take place Saturday, June 24, 2017 from 8am until 4pm as 35 teams of paddlers race on the Beaufort river to win trophies and raise money for local cancer patients. Among the fun and festivities will be an opening ceremony, three heats of races, the moving Carnation Ceremony for cancer survivors and their families and the closing medal ceremony. DragonBoat Race Day will include many local businesses, community groups, teams of friends and family racing against each other. The mixed Cancer Survivor Division will be the showcase for our heroes and heroines, honoring the spirit of DragonBoat Race Day.
Teams will be fundraising as part of the competition. Individuals and teams that raise the most will be handsomely rewarded! The proceeds from the fundraising effort fuel DragonBoat Beaufort’s two-pronged mission. The first is to fund the ongoing activities of DragonBoat Beaufort’s cancer survivor teams; the second is to continue to strengthen our outreach programs of cancer-survivor-focused grants, support and counseling.Read More
