As part of DragonMax's commitment to promoting the sport of dragon boating, the team participates in community outreach and public service events through our host organization, the Berkeley Racing Canoe Center, www.BerkeleyRCC.org (501c3 tax-exempt). Along with hosting special group outings, BRCC also provides major support for the Berkeley Bay Festival and the Fourth of July Event at Berkeley Marina. Every year at these festivals, we introduce hundreds of people to dragon boat paddling, inspiring them to love the water and to become involved in our sport.
At the heart of dragon boating is teamwork, making it a great way to foster team bonding and camaraderie. If you would like to request a silent auction donation or would like more information about arranging a free group outing for your school, summer camp, non-profit organization, professional organization, work place, or other organization, please contact the BRCC Outreach Director Mary McDonald at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Here is a taste of what you can expect at your event!
