Dragon Boat Festival

The KARM Dragon Boat Festival is the ultimate unifying team sport for 21 of your co-workers or closest friends. Each team sits two-by-two in a 40-foot long boat to see who can be this year’s champion. For 18 years, this unique event has provided critical funding to feed, shelter and provide life-changing programs that restore men’s and women’s lives in Jesus’ name.
