Be part of this great cause

The ESCA Paddle for CancerSupport Dragon Boat Festival is our biggest annual cancer awareness event and fundraiser since 2007. AND it’s a FUN professionally organized competition with over 40 other like-minded teams racing in real dragon boats on beautiful Lac de Joux at l’Abbaye always on the first Sunday of September!

ESCA CancerSupport (ESCA CS), a local non-profit, provides professional emotional support and practical help to those affected by cancer in English and free of charge.  Our goal, with your help, is to keep it that way.

Teams come from all over Geneva and Vaud to take up paddles in support of ESCA CS while also making a Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) difference, or open team. It’s a great team building exercise for employees and a chance to publicise your organisation on our website as well as on printed material.

The Festival brings together nearly 3000 people from local and international communities. Consider it a family day out too, so bring the kids! There are organised Mini-Dragon boat races and a huge KiddieLand on the premises with a bouncy castle, animated shows, face painting, candy floss and more!

In less than 2 minutes (112 seconds) get a fantastic glimpse of what the festive, competitive, fun day looks like!  Click on the picture below. Enjoy with the sound on!

Due to COVID-19 and for the safety of all who participate, our Festival has been cancelled until further notice.
