Power2 Paddle Power2 Paddle will return on Thursday 18 May 2023, and we would love you to join us! In 2022 we held our first-ever Power2 Paddle - an afternoon of exhilarating Dragon Boat racing! Ancient and entertaining, Dragon Boat racing is open to all ages and abilities and requires no previous experience. Based on teamwork, Dragon Boating is exciting, social, competitive, and fun. This inter-corporate event helped provide urgent support to young people in the UK struggling with their mental health, wellbeing and academic engagement. Check out last year's event What happens on the day? Power2 partners unite to challenge themselves and each other, and to raise valuable funds for Power2’s work. No experience necessary! Each team receives instruction on boat safety and racing tips before competing in at least two heats. The two fastest teams then compete in a head-to-head final. All paddlers and spectators are welcome to enjoy a post-race BBQ, complimentary drinks and fully stocked bar, before we hand out trophies for the winners, and a few other ‘special categories’ as well. It was a great event and I know the whole WBD team thoroughly enjoy it. It was great to have Power2 representatives there to speak about the programmes that Power2 offer. - Dana, Womble Bond Dickinson A great team even to share with colleagues as well as other corporate members. Really well organised and the right mix of racing with networking opportunities. Introducing a couple of young people from Power2 was a really nice touch too! - Tobias, Weil, Gotshal and Manges If you'd like to enter a team or find out more about our sponsorship packages, please get in touch.
