Rowers on the Thames compete in a Dragon Boat Race to help charity Bloodwise fund vital research into blood cancer

Compete in this boat race on the Thames and help beat blood cancer

We're teaming up with the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society to hold our annual dragon boat race in Canary Wharf. Corporate teams of 11 can sign up for an evening of good-natured competition, teambuilding and networking, held to raise money towards vital blood cancer research.

Race distance

250 metres

Teams

Each team must comprise ten rowers and one drummer. You don’t need to have rowed before to take part – it’s very simple and there'll be a safety briefing and rowing demonstration before the race begins. Teams are encouraged to wear fancy dress and are welcome to invite spectators to attend and cheer them on. Spectators will be asked to make a donation on the door.

Minimum fundraising target

We ask that each team raises a minimum of £1,995 – enough to send one of our patient information booklets to 1,000 patients and their family members.

Location

Docklands Sailing and Watersports Centre, 235A Westferry Road, Isle of Dogs, London E14 3QS
