Tags: | | | |

CFB Halifax Base Commander and NDWCC Champion Capt(N) Dave Mazur took fundraising creativity to a new level with the inaugural “Paddle Against Poverty” Dragon Boat Race! On October 21, five teams of fundraisers – comprised of military and civilian Defence Team members – took to the waters of Lake Banook in Dartmouth. CFB Halifax and Maritime Forces Atlantic raced together in one boat, while four other boats were represented by Naval Fleet School (Atlantic), Fleet Maintenance Facility Cape Scott, Canadian Fleet Atlantic and Canadian Forces Health Services Centre (Atlantic). At the end of the day, the CFB Halifax/ MARLANT hybrid team came out victorious! Most importantly, the initiative raised $10,000 for the MARLANT . Bravo Zulu, everyone!
