The CHRISTUS Ochsner SWLA Foundation has re-imagined our event this year to ensure we’re keeping participants and volunteers as safe as possible. While the fun, competitive racing will certainly be missed, there is still much to enjoy in the spirit of the Dragon Boat competition as we work together to raise funds to help change kids’ health to change the future.
Proceeds will benefit the Children’s Miracle Network efforts to provide critical life-saving equipment for babies treated in the Labor & Delivery and NICU of CHRISTUS Ochsner Lake Area Hospital as well as fund CHRISTUS Ochsner St. Patrick Hospital and Foundation CMN initiatives.
Be ready for the debut of the 2021 Dragon Boat presentation video on Saturday, October 30 at 12:00 noon, when we’ll share the winners of our CMN Challenge, highlight the photos and videos submitted by teams and individuals across our community, and keep the Dragon Boat spirit alive!
BUT WAIT, THERE’S MORE DRAGON FUN WITH THESE EVENTS:
Create your very own dragon boat race at home. Hashtag and send in a photo or video of your dragon boat creations. Will it be a pool, a box, your bathtub – you decide! Get creative and win a prize.
Head to one of five locations around town that will have a dragon displayed. Take a photo, hashtag and enter to be shown in our Event Day presentation video.
Money raised will make miracles happen! We will award medals for the CMN Challenge Top Fundraising Team, CMN Challenge Top Individual Fundraiser and Best Team T-Shirt Design. For more information, call (337) 430-5353 or visit ChristusOchsnerSWLAFoundation.org
