A number of HALO researchers, staff and students were part of the CHEO FitHeads team that competed in the 2012 Tim Hortons Ottawa Dragon Boat Festival 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 51st among the mixed boats, earning a spot in the G final (up from the J final last year).  The team finished 2nd in the 200-metre final (53:20), 2nd in the 100-metre final (28:19) and 5th in the 500-metre final (2:24:06).

Congratulations, CHEO FitHeads!
