Have you ever just wanted to raise money for charity, whether in support of a family member, a friend or even just because you want to help out to a good cause?

Dragon Boat Racing isn’t just about the thrill of fast pace action and competition between colleagues and friends, it’s about charity and collecting hundreds or maybe even thousands for good causes and dragon boating is a good way to go about it. During one of our largest events this year, Maidstone dragon boat festival, 43 teams of amazing individuals plus hundreds of supporters from the local area managed to raise over £100,000 for multiple different charities, this is a great example of what one day can do for great charities like Macmillan, Help for Heroes and Marie Curie. The way in which they are able to achieve this is due to Race the Dragons fundraising models, where teams hit targets for their charities.
‘Breast cancer survivors’ dragon boating is an international movement inspired by the research of Canadian sports medicine specialist Don McKenzie. Survivors of breast cancer join together to paddle dragon boats to the benefit of their physical health and social wellbeing. This sport alone has collectively raised hundreds of thousands and maybe even millions for a good cause and you can support any charity of your choice.
