Thank you all for making 2018 unforgettable!
With 68 teams, more than 1,000 paddlers, hundreds of volunteers and thousands of donors, Peterborough's 2018 Dragon Boat Festival was an incredible success. So far we have raised more than $155,000 toward fast and effective cancer diagnosis and treatment at our regional hospital. Our fundraising total will continue to be updated as we receive more pledge sheets.

If your friends and family didn't get a chance to donate before race day, please let them know there is still time! Visit  to make your contribution, or drop off cash and cheque donations at any Kawartha Credit Union branch.

Thank you to everyone who helped make this year's Festival one of our best ever. Your support WILL SAVE LIVES!
Raised in the community.
Stays in the community.

Please contact Festival Chair Michelle Thornton with any feedback about the 2018 Festival or questions about joining the team next year.

We'll be spending some time this summer tallying up the funds and we'll be back in the Fall to let you know exactly how much was raised in support of cancer diagnosis and treatment in our community. Stay tuned...
