Dragon boat racing originated over 2000 years ago in ancient China. The ultimate team sport, dragon boats are 46 foot long vessels propelled by a crew of 20 paddlers and a drummer who keeps the pace with the cadence of the drum beat. There will also be a professional steerer provided by the dragon boat company.
Many people paddle to raise money for causes all over the world. This event will help raise money for brain injured children throughout the Lehigh Valley and surrounding areas. It will support the many initiatives that we do for our kiddos and our next big project, an adapted playground.
