Dryden, Canada – July 1, 2017 – MAG Aerospace’s Canada location joined forces with the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources in participation in the 13th annual Dragon Boat Festival. The festival takes place on the Wabigoon River and is organized by the Kinsmen Club of Dryden which helps fund the “Still Me” program at the Dryden Hospital. Each dragon boat carries a crew of 10 paddlers, one drummer, and one steerer. MAG staff participated in two boats and with skill, fun, and a bit of luck, both boats made it to the finals.
Through donations, entry fees and contributions, including from MAG, close to $10,000 was raised to assist this local program delivered through the Dryden Regional Health Center Oncology Unit. It consists of workshops offered for people undergoing cancer treatments to help them look and feel their best. The concept of the program is to assist people living with cancer to approach cancer and its treatment with greater confidence.
