27 teams entered the Rotary Charity Dragon Boat Challenge and competed in the name of charity on the Valtava river in Prague. The teams were made up from clubs, societies, organisations and companies from the Prague region including Rotary clubs. Good natured rivalry and a determination to win spurred on the paddlers whose competence and confidence increased with each heat. However it was not all about winning - the event raised substantial sums for the three charities which were selected as the beneficiaries from the 2017 event: ŽIVOT 90, an organisation providing a wide range of services for senior citizens, Nadace Naše Dítě who offer much needed help and support for many children in very difficult circumstances and Výbor dobré vůle (VDV) whose main purpose is to help disabled, abandoned and discriminated against people to integrate into society. A big THANK YOU has to also go to Peter Klima and the Czech Dragon Boat Association for their kind help and assistance without which this event would not be possible.
