A number of HALO researchers, staff and students were part of the CHEO FitHeads team that competed inÂ the 2012 Tim Hortons Ottawa Dragon Boat FestivalÂ on Saturday and Sunday. In addition to being about physical activity and fun, the Festival raises money for local charities.
The CHEO FitHeads ranked 59th out of 204 teams going into Sunday’s races and, on Sunday, they ranked 51stÂ among the mixed boats, earning a spot in the G final (up from the J final last year). Â The team finished 2ndÂ in the 200-metre final (53:20), 2ndÂ in the 100-metre final (28:19) and 5thÂ in the 500-metre final (2:24:06).
Congratulations, CHEO FitHeads!
