The 5th annual International Dragon Boat Festival took place recently at Downtown Disney. It was an incredible event to see. The ten rows of people in each boat, all putting their paddles in the water at the same time to the beat of the drum, is amazing to see. There were people of all ages and abilities in the boats, all working toward a common goal. The proceeds of festival went to support cancer programs in our area, including the emotional needs of patients and transportation for those going to and from the treatment.
Each team that rowed together reminded me of the family and friends that come together when someone has cancer. When they all work together and coordinate well, great things can be accomplished.
