WND & WVS BCBS Champ Cup Winners !!!

WND and WVS is our repeat Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Vermont Champ Cup winner for 2017.

Our Dragonheart VT team would like to extend our gratitude to Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Vermont and our sponsors, our community racers, BCS racers, donors, volunteers and vendors for 2017. It was another truly successful year due to all of your help.

Dragonheart Vermont strives to strengthen and empower breast cancer survivors and supporters through the challenging sport of dragon boating, instilling in its members the values of teamwork, fitness and community giving.  

Funds raised from the Festival benefit the programs of Dragonheart Vermont and other cancer non-profit organizations in our area.

In 2018, our Pledge Partner is Integrative Therapies at the UVM Cancer Center.  While cancer therapy has improved cancer outcomes, cancer and its treatment often come with significant challenges that require additional support beyond traditional medical approaches.  Integrative Therapies at The UVM Cancer Center provides acupuncture, yoga, massage, mindfulness and other therapies to cancer patients and survivors.  These integrative therapies have a proven track record for controlling pain, fatigue and other side effects while improving psychological outlook and quality of life.  Your financial support will help The UVM Cancer Center to offer health and wellness-enhancing integrative therapies in conjunction with traditional cancer care for cancer patients and survivors in Vermont and upstate New York.




When you see the excitement at the Festival, you will want to be in a Boat!!!
