Funds raised will support cardiology at SickKids
Toronto, ON – June 6 – The eleventh annual Dragon Boat Festival is taking place on June 8, 2014 at the mouth of the credit river in Port Credit at the Mississauga Canoe Club. This event promotes corporate team building, competition, and fun, while raising funds for local charitable and non-profit organizations such as Cardiac Kids and The Hospital for Sick Children (SickKids). The objective of the event is to expose the community to the fun, excitement, and team building benefits of recreational and competitive paddle sport through corporate and community participation. The Mississauga Canoe Club is dedicated to their fundraising goal of 20,000 and is grateful for the support of the lead sponsor of this event, Bayshore Health Care.
