2018 IBCPC Participatory Dragon Boat Festival

There are 26 Spirit Warriors registered to attend this event in Florence, Italy for the 2018 festival July 6 -8th, 2018.

The IBCPC Dragon Boat Festival is held every four years under the auspices of the International Breast Cancer Paddler’s Commission. The Festival is an international non-competitive participatory event targeting Breast Cancer Survivors teams who engage in Dragon Boat activities as post-operative rehabilitation. Born from the idea of a Canadian sports medicine physician, Doctor Don McKenzie about twenty years ago, Dragon Boat paddling has become a rehabilitation therapy for tens of thousands of men and women worldwide, who have undergone surgery.

For the first time since its institution in 2005, the IBCPC FESTIVAL will be held in Europe – in Italy!! The Florence 2018 Festival will involve 129 teams from 17 countries, and for the very first time ALL the continents are represented.

We have been raising funds for this trip of a lifetime and hope that you are able support us along the way.
