We’re coming up to our 15th year holding our incredible Dragon Boat Virtual Challenge, and we wanted to give you an update. As you are aware, the current pandemic has pushed schedules back. As an organization that relies on event-based fundraising as well as general donations, we need to make some informed, and sometimes difficult choices. And thanks to an adaptation to the “New Normal,” we have come up with some exciting solutions.
We are asking you to challenge yourself and to continue your support, as this year we will be transitioning to a virtual platform. All funds raised will support complimentary programs and services to improve the quality of life for cancer patients and their families. We don’t have 1 but 4 different challenges for you to choose from. As a team and individual you will be giving yourself a goal and a fundraising goal that you’ll have to complete by Saturday September 12. We are encouraging participants to get outside while maintain a healthy distance from others.
How to join the virtual movement?
Step 1: As a team you will have to choose one of the challenges and create your own goal.
Step 2: Choose your fundraising goal and create your personal page!
Step 3: Complete your challenge and fundraising goal!
