Dragons Abreast Australia is a national charity with groups spread across the country and a membership of over 1200 individuals, the majority of whom are breast cancer survivors.
Once breast cancer surgery is over and treatment has finished, survivors are often left on their own, facing the sometimes daunting task of rebuilding their health, their fitness, and their lives. This is where Dragons Abreast Australia comes in.
Dragons Abreast provides an understanding network for survivors who participate in the sport of dragon boat paddling. It has been medically proven that paddling helps improve health after treatment. Not only are there physical benefits but dragon boat paddling is an activity that draws out the innate qualities of breast cancer survivors – hope, inspiration, excitement and determination to beat a dreaded disease faced by millions of women and men (yes, men get breast cancer too) around the world.
Sporting prowess is not one of our criteria for participation! We’d love you to join us on the water.
