Are you a breast cancer survivor? Do you have friends or family that are? Help shine a light in a very positive way on a terrific route to improved physical and mental health outcomes for breast cancer survivors. Contribute to the North Shore Dragon Busters as they travel to the 2014 International Breast Cancer Dragon Boat Festival in Sarasota, Florida, October 24-26 to carry the message that breast cancer need not curtail an active, positive and productive life. The exercise, excitement and camaraderie of dragon boat racing enables breast cancer survivors of all ages to regain control of their bodies, while increasing their strength, mobility and well-being. Opportunities for participation in wellness workshops and activities add to the value of the event, as do the meaningful ceremonies that attract large audiences.   The North Shore Dragon Busters, a competitive dragon boat team for over seven years, promote breast cancer awareness through participation in local and international dragon boat regattas, community events, and fundraising activities that help to “spread the word” of hope, strength, power and courage.

 

Team expenses for dragon boat racing include boat rental twice a week for practices for six months, stiff race entry fees, and travel expenses to regattas and festivals. The major costs are covered by team fees. The breast cancer awareness rewards of travel to Sarasota are significant, but entry and travel expenses are high.   Please help us carry the message of strength, power and courage to all breast cancer survivors, their families, their friends and their colleagues.
