Teams of 20 paddlers per dragon boat, led by a team captain or co-captains, sign up throughout the year. Fundraising is done through social networking, holding special events and gathering pledges. Each team must raise a minimum of $12,500 prior to Race Day ($625 per paddler) in order to participate.
The Cedars CanSupport Dragon Boat Steering Committee supports the participantsâ€™ efforts with an interactive website, public relations and a full support team to encourage and help with fundraising ideas and activities.
To make it more fun and to add to the competitive nature of this event, we offer all teams four (4) free dragon boat training and practice sessions in the months leading up to the event (June, July, August and September)
