The 4th annual Dragon Boat races in Waterford on the weekend raised close to $12,000 for two charities.
Around 500 people piled into 21 boats on Saturday and raced their boats in support of the CIBC Run for the Cure and the Cancer Support and Resource program in Norfolk County.
10 of the 21 teams were from outside of Norfolk County.
Event Coordinator Gail Catherwood says that they got great feedback on the event and the local area from those who came from outside of the County.
Catherwood says that the event would not have been possible without the support of their sponsors. While organizers have not officially announced the event for next year, they anticipate having a 5th annual event next year.
