This week we were notified that the Capital Region Community Foundation will be providing a grant to support two teams for the Race this year. The grant is specifically for one team of at-risk youth and another team of survivors. The Women’s Center of Greater Lansing defines survivors as anyone who has survived cancer, domestic violence, or sexual assault.
Training will start in July and our team of trainers is ready to go—we just need paddlers! If you or someone you know fits into the category of at-risk youth or woman survivor and would like to train and participate in the Dragon Boat Race & Festival this year, please contact us ASAP by phone at 517.372.9163 or email.
Thanks for spreading the word. Paddles up!
