The sport of dragon boating may have ancient Chinese roots, but there’s no mistaking that the The Woodlands Family YMCA’s Dragon Boat Race has become a tradition in The Woodlands, too.

For the nineteenth year, teams will race colorful, dragon-headed boats across Lake Woodlands, participate in games and enjoy friendly competition in support of the community-strengthening programs provided by The Woodlands Family YMCA.

Proceeds benefit The Woodlands Family YMCA Annual Campaign, which ensures that everyone, regardless of age, income or background has the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive at the Y.
