More than 1000 participants and spectators attended the 14th edition of the FL Fuller Landau Dragon Boat Race & Festival benefitting the Cedars Cancer Foundation’s CanSupport program on September 7 at Parc Père-Marquette in Lachine.
Founded in 2006, the Dragon Boat Race & Festival began with six boats and has grown to an event regrouping more than 24 boats, with over $6 million raised to date. This year, FL Fuller Landau celebrated its 12th anniversary as the presenting sponsor of the festival, and took pride in being active participants with two boats. The FL Fuller Landau Flowing Flames were the top fundraising team with a total of $72,532 raised.
The VIP tent was buzzing with enthusiasm and Mother Nature was on the paddlers’ side for this event. Funds raised will be donated to the Cedars CanSupport program, which provides psychological, practical, and humanitarian assistance, as well as support services for cancer patients at the McGill University Health Centre.
