SHIVER & GIVER RAISES OVER SIXTEEN THOUSAND FOR LOCAL CHARITIES

The Ottawa Ice Dragon Boat Festival held the inaugural Shiver & Giver Fundraising Races. Over sixteen thousand in funds were raised for local charities supported through the Ottawa Dragon Boat Foundation!

The top five fundraising teams in both the mixed and women’s divisions got to hit the ice before anyone else. Competitors raised money for Youth Services Bureau, the Ottawa Dragon Boat Foundation Community Fund and the Tim Horton’s Children’s Foundation in support of Voyageurs summer camp in Quyon, QC.
