Why is there a fund raising commitment?
Dragonboat Race Day is a fund raiser for DragonBoat Beaufort, the local cancer survivor/supporter racing team. We provide cancer survivors a chance to connect with other survivors and experience the joy of dragonboating on our beautiful Beaufort River. We leave cancer at the dock by providing cancer survivors the opportunity to heal and regain physical and psychological strength and wellness through the camaraderie and competition of dragon boat paddling and racing. We also have an Outreach program where we make grants to local cancer patients with needs they are unable to afford or for which they lack coverage. We have provided food, paid rent and utility bills, and provided transportation to medical treatments. We will help you with a fund raising page and a means to reach out to your social contacts for fund raising!
