Are you ready to join Half Moon Dragon Boat Festival on August 3rd, 2019?!
The Half Moon Dragon Boat Festival brings the community together for a day to watch and cheer on the dragon boat teams as they race each other on Half Moon Lake to raise money for Chippewa Valley local cancer-related services.
It’s an exciting day filled with fun, camaraderie, teamwork and community health while raising support for cancer-related services.
Dragon boat racing originated in China about 2,000 years ago, and began gaining popularity with breast cancer survivors in the late 1990s. That’s when a Canadian doctor discovered that repetitive-motion exercise, such as dragon boat paddling, could help breast cancer patients avoid developing lymphedema, a permanent swelling that can occur in the arms or legs after surgery or radiation treatment.
