2008 Saint John Dragon Boat Festival

Thanks to our 2008 Dragon Boat teams for raising over $282,000!


This year we embarked on our most ambitious goal to date of raising $250,000 for the expansion of the Extended Day Surgery Program at St. Joseph’s Hospital.


Expanding the Extended Day Surgery Program increased St. Joseph’s surgical capacity and reduce wait times throughout the region for procedures ranging from General Surgery, Orthopaedic Surgery, Breast Surgery and Urodynamic Surgery.


St. Joseph’s Hospital Foundation and the Saint John Dragon Boat Festival Committee extend sincerest thanks to our sponsors, volunteers, and competitors for their part in making an incredible difference to the quality of healthcare in Saint John.
