Canada Dry Victoria Dragon Boat Festival 2017

The Paddlers’ Pledge Program Celebrates 10 Year Partnership with the BC Cancer Foundation!

The BC Cancer Foundation is pleased to once again be the benefiting charity of the Victoria Dragon Boat Festival happening August 18-20, 2017! We are very excited to be celebrating a 10 year partnership with the festival so we welcome you and your team to help celebrate by participating and adding some friendly fundraising competition to your Dragon Boat experience.

You can raise funds for the BC Cancer Foundation and help make a difference. This year the funds will support Immunotherapy Research happening at the BC Cancer Agency's Deeley Research Centre in Victoria. For virtually every type of cancer there is now clear evidence that patients who mount a strong immune response are likely to survive longer. After a decade of laboratory research supported by BC Cancer Foundation donors, Dr. Brad Nelson, director of the Deeley Research Centre, and colleagues are joining forces with experts at the BC Cancer Agency’s Genome Sciences Centre to deliver truly personalized immunotherapy to patients across British Columbia with immunotherapy clinical trials.

The Victoria Dragon Boat Festival is generously offering the top fundraising team free registration for the 2018 Festival and the second place fundraising team 50% off their registration for next year.

Still on the fence about fundraising? The Victoria Dragon Boat Festival is also offering prime team placement in Paddlers Village to the first five teams who raise $5,000 or more! These spots are larger and have fabulous views of the harbour so don't wait, start your fundraising today!

Not paddling? Support your favourite paddling team or individual paddler by making a donation.
Thank you for your support of the BC Cancer Foundation and we wish you all the best at this year’s Victoria Dragon Boat Festival!
