The University of Wisconsin Oshkosh and the Oshkosh YMCA have announced that US Bank has become a ‘Shuttle Bus’ sponsor for the Oshkosh Dragonboat Race and Festival. This year’s event will be held on Saturday, Sept. 25 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Leach Amphitheater.
Since 2006, The University of Wisconsin Oshkosh and the Oshkosh YMCA have created a tradition for community members through the Dragonboat Race & Festival. This event is held during the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh’s Fall Fest weekend and welcomes thousands of community members to participate in a celebration that strives to promote education, family, culture and Oshkosh waterways. Proceeds from this event are donated to the Oshkosh YMCA Strong Kids Fund and the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh Dragonboat Scholarship, a scholarship that benefits any Winnebago County resident who would like to receive a higher education, but may be financially incapable.
Community members and businesses are invited to join the elite group of sponsors to help improve education and health in Oshkosh. To sponsor, visit www.uwosh.edu/fallfest for details.
