York Dragon Boat Races

Three Bears Dragon Boat Race with YO1 Radio

Cost: FREE

Date: 14/07/2024

Venue: River Ouse between Scarborough Railway Bridge and Lendal Bridge

YO1 Radio and the Three Bears Foundation are delighted to be taking part in this year’s Rotary Club of York Dragon Boat Races, taking place on SUNDAY 14th JULY 2024 on the River Ouse between Scarborough Railway Bridge and Lendal Bridge.

Last year YO1 managed a VERY respectable THIRD PLACE, this year they aim to go one (or, preferably, TWO) better!

For 2024, they will be raising awareness and funds for THE THREE BEARS FOUNDATION. You can visit our fundraising page here …..

The YO1 Radio Rules The Waves team will feature some of their presenters, partners as well as friends from the Three bears. The rest of our team will be cheering on from the riverbank.

PLEASE COME ALONG AND SAY HELLO – AND SUPPORT US ON THE DAY!

WE WOULD BE VERY GRATEFUL IF YOU COULD THROW A FEW QUID IN OUR DIRECTION – AS OUR DONATION PAGE IS NOW OPEN AND  WILL REMAIN OPEN UNTIL 31st AUGUST. The links are at the top and bottom of this page.

Two-thirds of funds raised will go to The Three Bears Foundation, with the remainder to the Rotary charities.

Over the last 20 years, the Rotary Club of York Dragon Boat Races have raised over £1.4 million. A fantastic achievement.

If you’d like to support the cause, we’d love you to visit our ‘Enthuse’ fundraising page, by following the link below. Every donation, however small, will go to some fantastic local causes. Thanks for your support. Here’s the link …..
