Thanks to loyal sponsors, donations from their tillers, and team membership fees the Chix with Stix dragon boat team raised $3,000 for the Nanaimo & District Hospital Foundation to be directed towards the Nanaimo Regional General Hospital’s (NRGH) Palliative Care Education Fund. This Fund allows medical professionals to gain further education regarding end of life care; an education that will benefit patients as well as their families.
The Chix with Stix Dragon Boat Team paddled their way to 2nd overall in the “Platinum ‘A’ Women’s Division” at the 2013 Save On Foods Dragon Boat Festival in July. As the top women’s team from Nanaimo they were also awarded the Lorri Marriott Trophy.
