The Lake Champlain Dragon Boat Festival is team and community spirit at its best. In the last ten years, they have raised $1.65 million through the Festival efforts, all of which has gone to cancer support in our Vermont community. In 2011, Dragonheart identified a critical need for ongoing help and support for cancer survivors in our community after their clinical treatment ends. ‘Survivorship NOW’ was created to meet this need. It provides a full calendar of free wellness programs aimed to empower survivors to move past cancer and live well. Proceeds from the Lake Champlain Dragon Boat Festival will benefit Dragonheart Vermont, a breast cancer survivor and supporter dragon boat organization, and Survivorship NOW, cancer wellness programs.
