UWinnipeg's Rowed Scholar Ship

UWinnipeg's Rowed Scholar Ship:
Fundraising for Cancer

By Annette Elvers

At the annual Dragon Boat Races held September 8 - 10, 2006, UWinnipeg's dragon boat team the Rowed Scholar Ship raised nearly $4,000 for cancer care and research.

More than 20 University of Winnipeg faculty and staff members took part in the fundraiser, rowing their way to a respectable best time of 2:44 minutes. Congratulations to the team and to all those who helped raise money for this important cause!

The dragon boaters would also like to extend a big thank you to all the UWinnipeg students, staff, and friends who came out to cheer on the paddlers-and to Gaspards who donated the mortarboards as part of the stylish team uniform.

This is the second year a University of Winnipeg team participated in the Dragon Boat Races held at The Forks.
