Brock’s dragon boat team, the Paddleheads, has raised $850 for Wellspring Niagara.
The team of about 24 members placed 23 out of 35 teams at the St. Catharines Dragon Boat Festival at Henley Island on July 24. The team’s time was seven minutes and 12 seconds.
In addition to the Wellspring Niagara donation, their registration fee supported the St. Catharines Museum.
The team was also filmed for a St. Catharines Standard video, shown with the article Padding for a cause. Kristen Smith, Community Connections community services co-ordinator, was also quoted in the article.
