Lake Champlain Dragon Boat Festival, BTV, 2014




Dragonheart Vermont is one of Vermont’s most dynamic 501(c)3 non-profits. We strive to provide support, hope, fitness, and camaraderie to breast cancer survivors in our community through the challenging sport of dragon boating. The organization has also expanded its team-building mission to include supporters. Both our paddling skills and our membership have grown over the years, and continue to grow. We now stand at 175 people paddling on 10 different teams, depending on age, interest, and abilities. Together, our Dragonheart Vermont teams have made their mark on this sport. We have won GOLD medals on the national and international level. (http://ridethedragon.org/festivals.aspx)

Thank You to the BTV Parks folks for putting in place Solar Powered trash compactor receptacle and companion recycling receptacle. Also besides the many, many food vendors, there was free water served in paper cups (no plastic).
