  • Spirit Centre, it is the Dragonflies.

  • In lane three, representing Surrey Place Centre, the Flying Dragons.

  • In four, representing the Meta Centre is Team Magnificent

  • My friend here, Ron, told me that he's on he Dragon Boat Race.

  • So, I thought I'd like to be interested in it. So, I started last year and it was fun so I want to continue.

  • The opportunity to participate in the Spirit Challenge Dragon boating came about for us six years ago

  • when we realized that there was an opportunity for people with disabilities to participate in dragon boating.

  • And by 2008, we had eight teams.

  • Some of the people are from my work so I might go against them so we trash talk.

  • I say we'll win. They say they'll win.

  • For getting people in the boat, we wheel them onto the docks generally

  • and assist them in lifting or transferring into the boat.

  • In each boat, there are 20 paddlers.

  • There's a person drumming at the front and a person steering at the back.

  • There are at least 10 people with a disability in each boat.

  • Honestly, I thought, well, if they can do it, maybe I can try and do it because I am partly paralyzed.

  • Well done! Come on! Now paddle right through to that finish line!

  • We won it last year.

  • In this race, you can see people's joy. You can see their excitement.

  • You can see them working together as a team.

  • But you can't see their passion and their commitment and how much limitations they have overcome

  • to work through demonstrating their ability in participating and working together.

  • And in lane three, the Surry Place Centre Flying Dragons

  • and in lane two, Christian Horizonsin lane five

  • Congratulations! Good job, Dragonflies!

Spirit Centre, it is the Dragonflies.
