DU Top Dragon Boat Fundraiser

Decatur Utilities has surpassed the $100,000 mark in total Dragon Boat Race & Festival fundraising since 2012 for the Decatur-Morgan Hospital Foundation. This year, the DU Community Crew turned in $13,456 from its employees and vendors, including a matching donation from the TVA Community Care Fund. (NOTE: None of the donations come from DU ratepayer funds.)

2022 marked the return of the Dragon Boat Race and Festival after being cancelled in 2020 and 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Funds raised by the 2022 Dragon Boat Race and Festival will go toward purchase of a da Vinci robotic surgical system for Decatur Morgan Hospital.

As for the race, DU paddlers teamed up with Red X Fitness for a third place finish in the Class A Championship Heat with a time of 1:17. Only Austin High School (2nd) and Lynn Layton (1st) posted better times.
