Volunteers are needed to run just about everything during the Save On Foods Nanaimo Dragon Boat Festival...and they certainly keep it running smoothly! Volunteer directors work with over 100 volunteers to take care of a variety of jobs: security and traffic control to information booth and party crew, to set up and tear down. There is a job for everyone! After experiencing the camaraderie and the ceremony for the first time, many of our volunteers return year after year.

Just ask volunteer Noel Schneider. He has volunteered for many years, taking care of everything from maintenance to set up, often going from early morning until early evening."I don't only help the paddlers, I help out the public as well," mentions Noel.

How will you spend your time? You'll be in a beautiful park, surrounded by happy people, watching exciting dragon boat races, helping paddlers and spectators alike, united in a fight against cancer. Read the Top 10 Reasons to Volunteer here.
