Dragon Boat Races

2020 Dragon Boat Race Rescheduled for October 31 

In the interest of public health and out of an abundance of caution, the CHRISTUS Ochsner Health Southwestern Louisiana Foundation has decided to reschedule the 2020 Dragon Boat Race for Saturday, October 31, 2020.

This difficult decision was reached by CHRISTUS Ochsner Health Southwestern Louisiana Leadership in collaboration with numerous local, regional and state officials as a precaution to protect our most vulnerable populations as steps to limit the possibility of potential COVID-19 transmission. The safety and well-being of the Lake Charles community is our top priority, and after careful consideration it’s clear this is the best course of action. We look forward to continuing this annual tradition with the community this fall given that the virus is under control and activities for us all have returned to normal.

If you have any questions, please call our office at (337) 430-5353 or email Allison Schnake, Children’s Miracle Director at allison.schnake@christushealth.org.


In 2019, we raised more than $143,000 for the Children’s Miracle Network, which is now funding critical life-saving equipment for babies being treated in our Level III Neonatal Intensive Care Unit and Labor and Delivery Unit at CHRISTUS Ochsner Lake Area Hospital.
