Peterborough’s Dragon Boat Festival
An annual community fundraiser to raise funds for the Peterborough Regional Health Centre’s (PRHC) breast assessment centre for diagnostic equipment.
About 70 dragon boat teams from all sectors race on Saturday, June 10, 2017 to raise awareness of breast cancer and funds for the PRHC. Races start at approximately 8:30 a.m. and end at about 4:30 p.m. A highlight of the day is the breast cancer division McKenzie cup race followed by the moving pink carnation ceremony with music performed by the Pop Ensemble. Since the inaugural event in 2001, the festival has raised almost $3 million for leading edge equipment.
