Dragon Boats raise $4,000

The Penticton Dragon Boat Festival Society raised $4,000 for Muscular Dystrophy Canada last weekend during the Okanagan Super Sprints on Skaha Lake.

The 11th annual event attracted over 400 athletes with 16 crews from across B.C.

The local breast cancer survivor team, Team Survivorship, took the women’s “A” finals, while another local team, Despirit Housewives, took second in the Saturday race.

With the $4,000 raised at the event, the Penticton Dragon Boat Festival has now raised $34,000 for Muscular Dystrophy Canada.

Many of the same teams will return for the full festival in September.
