Immunize Nevada and GWN Events hosted the second annual Northern Nevada International Dragon Boat Festival at the Sparks Marina on Saturday, Aug. 18.
A warm, rather windless day created great racing conditions. Racers rowed hard across nearly the entirety of the Sparks Marina in a rough average of 2 minutes and 30 seconds. Team DragonMax, out of Berkeley, California set the day’s record of 2 minutes and 12 seconds.
Immunize Nevada was competing in the event, which was a fundraiser for the nonprofit, and promoting vaccinations for Nevadans. You can learn more about them at https://immunizenevada.org/
