Description

Get your family, friends, neighbors, and co-workers together and join us for the 4th Annual Gilda's Club South Jersey Dragon Boat Festival! This event features competitive dragon boat races, delicious food from local food vendors, a beer garden featuring local breweries, and a health and fitness expo. Our "party on the lake" is a great day for expert and novice paddlers, their cheerleaders (spectators), and anyone who wants to enjoy a summer day at Lake Lenape.

Dragon Boating is easy to learn, extremely safe, and an activity where men and women compete side-by-side towards the same goal. Regardless of how young, old, big, or little: once a paddler is in stroke, they are contributing to their team! Add the outdoors, the water, the visual spectacle of dragon boating and you get a perfect activity for friends and family, corporate team building, or a school outing! In addition to competing to be the fastest boat on the water, teams also challenge each other to see who has the best team costume, best dressed drummer, and best tent decoration.

Absolutely no experience is necessary to participate and we provide the boats, paddles, life jackets, and race course! We recommend 21-24 participants per team, with a minimum of 8 female paddlers in the boat for every race. The minimum age to paddle is 12 years old.

The proceeds from this event benefit Gilda's Club South Jersey, a local affiliate of the Cancer Support Community. Our goal is to provide support to all South Jersey residents – men, women, teens, and children – affected by cancer in any way. Members have the opportunity to take part in over 1,000 activities each year, at no cost to them. Whether someone is newly diagnosed, going through treatment, a caregiver of a person with cancer, or someone who has lost a loved one to cancer, they will find a community of support at Gilda’s Club South Jersey.

Every dollar raised at the Dragon Boat Festival allows Gilda’s Club South Jersey to provide support groups, educational workshops, and social activities FREE of charge to members.

Sponsorship opportunities for this event are available. Please contact Eileen at (609) 926-2699 or eileen@gildasclubsouthjersey.org for more information.
