The IBCPC Dragon Boat Festival is held every four years under the auspices of the International Breast Cancer Paddler’s Commission – this year it will be held from the 6th to the 8th of July in Florence, Italy. It will be three days of intense program activity: demonstrations, workshops and social events aimed at awareness and dialogue within the large international community of “Breast Cancer Survivors”, in addition to the dragon boat races.
CanSurvive is an enthusiastic group of breast cancer survivors from Wellington who compete in dragon boating. This team of 26 will be one of three teams representing New Zealand at this event.
On Monday 18 June, La Bella Italia will be hosting a three-course fundraising dinner for their trip.
