What people say

Andy Church
Pulling people into ODBF fundraising events is a simple and fun way to pay-it-forward. I take great pride in motivating others to step up and join in on the annual Charity Cup Races. It's my favorite festival!
Sandy Foote
I love fundraising for the community through the ODBF.  The monies go to charities that help people who live here to have a better quality of life.  To me it is a great way to give back.
Richard Martin
I have come to know many good people who regularly get together to build friendships through paddling and community work. This is the Ottawa dragon boat family.
Amanda Weatherdon
There’s no better feeling then being able to help raise money for the community I live in and being able to compete against all the teams who enjoy and appreciate the sport as much as I do.
Marie-Frederike Scott
Thanks to the Dragon Boat Foundation, the kids of Ottawa and Gatineau have the opportunity to come to our camp in Quyon. We are really grateful and thankful for the Foundation. These funds will allow more kids in the region to come to the camp and participate in our activities like the leadership and youth development programs. We really appreciate everything and thank them very much.
