In 2014 an application was made to form the International Boundary Waters Dragon Boat Foundation, making the Foundation one of only two Dragon Boat Foundations in Canada at the time of incorporation.
In 2017 we received our Incorporation in the state of Minnesota, making our Foundation, Club and Teams truly international.
The Foundation, through the support of the club and it's three official crews, hosts an annual dragon boat festival that is free to the public to attend the festivities. This festival raises money to fight Breast Cancer with the endorsement of the Canadian Cancer Society Breast Cancer cause.
In addition, our club's certified coach & steers provide free weekly paddles throughout the boating season, and free pool side paddles and swim lessons and guided backwoods ski adventures during the off-season to promote life long healthy lifestyles.
Our Board is proud to serve in the pursuit of growth and awareness of the sport, while giving back to the communities we serve.
