The Canadian Cancer Society together with Stride Place (formerly the PCU Centre) and the Manitoba Paddling Association, once again bring dragon boat racing to Portage la Prairie for a Canada Day Festival that will have everyone cheering!and meet us at the dock.
The 500-metre race will feature 11-person dragon boats, offering something for every paddler whether they’re experienced or first-timers. Paddles and personal floatation devices will be provided, so just bring your pledges
It’s a great way for friends and family or co-workersÂ to get together, celebrate some national pride and raise important funds to fight cancer. Paddlers contribute to the fight against ALL cancers in Manitoba by gathering pledges. Registration fees will offset the cost of putting on the race. The top 8 fundraising teams will be recognized in a special feature race.
