Louisville Third Century Strassen-Dragons were the first ever Louisville Dragon Boat Champions in the inagural races last year. Now, we are back for a repeat, and some! We hope to reclaim our title on the river, but want to achieve another accomplishment this year: to fundraise as much as we can to support the presenters of this event.
Our beneficiary, Louisville Third Century, has put together this event to do a lot of good on many different levels. Dragon Boat Racing provides great exercise, unparalleled team building, and a very engaging platform to do some really FUN fundraising!
Though The Races are new to our city, Louisville Third Century is not new to the scene by any means. This non-profit organziation has not only hosted several other successful and large scale events such as: Strassenfest, Artsfest, and too many concerts to name! They also do a lot of good for our city behind the scenes working with JCPS to put smartboards in classrooms, and founding a student shadowing prgoram that gives students a day of real world experience in the career of their choice. Louisville Third Century is also a big supporter of the metro parks, and local charities. For which they use their Catalyst Fund to facilitate game changing, and long lasting positive results for many other non-profits, businesses, and industries.
