It’s only one week until your MAHCP Conquer-Oars hit the water for the River City Dragon Boat Festival and they’re looking for some fan support to make their inaugural participation one to remember!
The 2015 River City Dragon Boat Festival, which is a fundraiser for the Canadian Cancer Society, takes place June 5 and 6 at the Manitoba Water Ski & Wakeboard Park, also known as Lake Shirley, on Murdock Road on the eastern border of Winnipeg.
In addition to the boat races, there will also be entertainment and other fun activities for the whole family.
According to the Canadian Cancer Society, the 2014 festival “drew more than 1400 participants from 60 teams and raised vital funds to support the fight against ALL cancers through research and programs that support Manitobans on a cancer journey.”
The MAHCP Conquer-Oars would LOVE to see their fellow members cheering them on next weekend! If you can’t make it out, then consider showing your support with a donation to this worthwhile cause at this link:
Paddles up, MAHCP Conquer-Oars! We all wish the team much success!
Here are some photos from the team’s second practice on Monday, May 25:
