TeamExpress Dragon Boat Challenge 2016A fundraising project by Express CIC
On 17th July 2016 Express launched our first ever dragon boat team at the annual Rotary Club challenge event in Canbury Gardens.
We are immensely proud that several young people on the autism spectrum took part. They were joined by teenagers volunteering from the National Citizenship scheme and some brave dads.
Having only met each other an hour beforehand, the team took to the water to race against other charity teams in three heats.
With each heat Team Express speeded up, achieving a magnificent best time of 1.10 - an impressive result considering they were the youngest team in the competition!
Can you help show your support by sponsoring our intrepid young team?
We want to ensure they know their efforts are fully appreciated and reach our £1,500 target.
Thank you - we are very grateful for every single donation!
Express is working in the local community supporting families living with autism. Please give what you can, thank you.
