2012 Children's Hospital Dragon Boat Benefit Sponsor
Medical Services of Chattanooga and North American Credit Services (NACS) is a proud 2012 corporate event sponsor for the annual Children's Hospital Dragon Boat benefit held at the Tennessee River Park and 3rd year employee crew team sponsor.
The Dragon Boat festival is a day full of fun and helping the children of the Chattanooga region. All funds raised at this event go directly to the Children's Hospital Foundation to support the local Children's Hospital's efforts to keep our youngest friends happy and healthy.
Dragon Boat racing has rapidly gained popularity across the globe as the 8th fastest growing sport in the world. The growth stems from participation of various groups and corporations using it as an opportunity to build their internal teams. "A truly unique, fun and unforgettable team building experience," shared Joel Henderson, NACS 3rd year Team Captain and Crew Team Drummer. "Anyone, regardless of fitness level, can paddle and participate, as long as a shared passion for working together as a team for such an amazing charitable cause." Teams such as the employee "Super Hero's" crew tean consist of 20 paddlers, a drummer and a steerer. This year 50 plus corporate and community teams competively raced in support of the benefit and collaboratively raised $135,000 for the Children's Hospital Foundation.
