Dragon boat competition raises money for charity

- Kennesaw battled it out with Acworth today on Lake Allatoona in a dragon boar race for charity.

Both cities had teams in the competition. It was a close race, but the Kennesaw team with Mayor Derek Easterling at the helm edged out the Acworth boat led by Mayor Tommy Allegood.

FOX 5's Denise Dillon paddled with the winning team. Kennesaw's mayor says it was a fierce competition, but it was all about raising money for Loving Arms Cancer Outreach.

The Dragon Boat Races raised more than $10,000 for Loving Arms Cancer Outreach, which provides education and support to patients and their families.
