The 11th Save On Foods Dragon Boat Festival enjoyed sunshine, spirit, and selflessness as more than 70 teams arrived from across Western Canada and the USA to compete for an essential cause. The Nanaimo & District Hospital Foundation respectfully offers its congratulations to the Festival for another successful year. The event has raised more than $600,000 for the purchase of breast cancer detection and treatment equipment at Nanaimo Regional General Hospital (NRGH); everyone benefits! This event is an incredible amount of work for organizers, volunteers, and participants. The Foundation thanks each and every person who has contributed to the success of the Save On Foods Dragon Boat Festival! Your work is necessary and so very much appreciated!
