|Jack London Square Waterfront, Oakland|
The ancient sport of dragon boating in all its cultural splendor is used as a fund raiser to help two local cancer charities. This event benefits the American Cancer Society California Chinese Unit and the Woman's Cancer Resource Center of Oakland. Help us raise money to raise awareness about the devastating effects of cancer on the poor and those with linguistic barriers.
This is not a race for the cure, this event benefits people in your community who can't wait for the race to be won. These are the poor, the elderly and the indigent who have cancer and need help today. Please join us and help.
