Dragons Abreast thanks you for your support. You paddle with us, so we can continue our paddling journey to send a message of hope, inspiration and encouragement to Breast Cancer survivors everywhere. We paddle a ‘dragon’ boat as a symbol of our survivorship and strength. Paddling is both challenging and gratifying, in so doing, we achieve our personal best in the hope of empowering and inspiring others who are going through this life changing journey.
Thank you to our generous partners Toronto Adventures and Firkin on the Bay, for making this awesome fundraising event possible https://torontoadventures.ca/ https://www.firkinpubs.com/firkinonthebay/
