Paddle for the Children – 6th Dragonboat Challenge
September 1, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 2:30 pm
FUNRAISING Charity Association, in cooperation with the Cyprus Dragon Boat Federation and the Raging Mouflons dragon boat team, is organizing the 6th: “PADDLE FOR THE CHILDREN Charity Dragon Boat CHALLENGE” in an effort to raise funds for the children it supports.
Join us at the Limassol Marina (West Side/Roundabout) at 9 a.m. on the 1st of SEPTEMBER 2019, for this entertaining event, full of fun, joy and teamwork.
Companies can participate with their own team(s) which can utilize this superior team-building event to attain team cohesion amongst colleagues. Companies can also take this opportunity for targeted marketing, by advertising through the design of their uniforms, and promoting their organization’s products and services by informing attendees in kiosks they can set up at the Marina.
Teams can also be formed by groups of friends, your gym members, your family, even with Funraising volunteers, not necessarily through your company. Just register your team!
This year there will be two types of teams. One with maximum 20 paddlers (16-20 members) and the other with maximum 10 paddlers (8-10 members). Each team will have to bring an additional person to be the drummer. Hence, teams will end up having 21 or 11 persons, respectively.
It is necessary that participants can swim; are 12 years of age or older; have completed a two hour training (€5/pp per hour) prior to the race, to learn dragon boat paddling and safety rules.
For registration of your team, set up your training schedule and more information, contact: Eleni Roussounidou at 99 622 068 or email: [email protected]
