Can you sponsor our team?

Sponsorship letter 

Corporate Sponsorship Rewards

We are always looking for sponsors to help with the many team expenses. These include boat rental for season, equipment, coaching, festival registration and fees, etc.

Can you help us match funds with city to get a dock in?

Our team is comprised of women from         their 30’s to their 70’s. Medical realities include breast cancer diagnoses and treatment years ago to women still undergoing chemo and other treatments during the season. Currently, there is no dock for us to load our very heavy boat boat at Pioneer Park. Along with the Kamloops Dragonboat Club, we have lobbied the city council for the last two years to get a dock in. Currently, we stand in the cold water at the start of the season to hold our boat as spirit warriors load. During the summer with the increased boat traffic, we may have to load and unload the boat in quicksand-like sticky mud…Having community and corporate sponsors is expected help make the dock a reality.

Finally, women on the team, as with all other groups, come from a variety of backgrounds and financial situations. We are hoping to carry our spirit of fun, fitness and friendship from Kamloops to the next International Breast Cancer Survivor Dragonboat Festival in Florence Italy in 2018. Any help with these expenses would be greatly appreciated.
