The coaches and staff at MCC are committed to training young athletes to help them reach their goals and realize their dreams. For more information about the club please visit gomissygo.ca.

Cardiac Kids - In support of SickKids Foundation

Cardiac Kids is a volunteer group established in 2000 to raise much needed funds for children suffering from congenital heart disease. One in 100 Canadian children are born with a heart defect and more than half require surgery to survive. Funds raised by Cardiac Kids are used to support the children and staff of the cardiology ward at the Hospital for Sick Children..

FAQs

How does it work?

Organizations enter teams of 18 to 22 people. A dragon boat holds up to 20 people but may be raced with fewer. You may also want to have spares so you can switch during the day of races.

What are entry rules for mixed teams?

Mixed teams must have a minimum of eight and maximum of ten paddlers of each gender.

How Many races can we expect to be in?

Each team will participate in two heats and one ‘final’. Medals will be awarded for each final and team pictures will be taken.

What time does the event start?

The event will start at 7:15 a.m. with team registration followed by the Team Captains Meeting at 7:45 a.m. Races will begin at 8:30 a.m. and will run until approximately 3:30 p.m.

What Should I bring?

Pack for the weather! Refillable water bottle, chair, and umbrella or tent. Merchant and food vendors will be available throughout the day and there are a number of great restaurants and bars in the Port Credit area if you would like to celebrate with your team after the event.

How can I contact the organizer with any questions?

mdbf@gomissygo.ca

Do I have to bring my printed registration to the event?

You do not, we have an online record available to retrieve upon check in. After registration, all Team members must fill out an online waiver (see gomissygo.ca - Events - MDBF).
