...in the third annual OSCAR Dragon Boat Race on Friday 16th September 2016 in London Docklands. Enter a team and enjoy an exciting afternoon of competitive racing, fantastic networking, team building and seriously good fun – all in aid of the OSCAR Campaign.

What’s the deal? As in previous years, teams of 11 (10 rowers and a drummer), pay an entry fee of £500 to help cover costs and aim to raise £5000 through sponsorship, company donations / fund matching.

On the day? Get a morning’s work in and then make your way to Docklands for networking, partying, racing and team building. A barbecue, bar and band will keep the party going.

How can you help? Enter a team. Become a sponsor. Make a donation. Become a co-host or helper and help us to tempt others to do some of the above.

What for? Research into childhood cancer and immune therapies. This is live research that is saving children today (www.gosh.org/oscar).

If you’re not able to enter a team, but would like to make up numbers on a mixed team, or if you can suggest or help with entertainment on the day, run a stall, enter an auction or raffle prize or have any other ideas, please get in touch. Similarly, please let me know if you are able to help us invite others to take part or have a publication that can run an article on the event.
