Fierce fun for Dragon Boat paddlers

Paddlers compete in last year’s competition, which helps raise funds for Dragonheart Vermont and Survivorship NOW’s cancer wellness programs.

This weekend dragons will take to Lake Champlain, cutting through the waters and racing head-to-head for a championship cup at the 11th Lake Champlain Dragon Boat Festival.

The Survivorship NOW Snowstorm, Windows and Oars by Brownell, The Vermont Tech Knightriders, Friends of Debra Lentine’s Carpe Debra and the VBT Bicycling Vacations will join the more than 1,400 paddlers in raising funds to support critical programs for cancer treatment and recovery in the state. Each team is 20 people, and many companies use it as a team-building excersize.
