Wonder Woman's Warriors participated in the 2018 International Breast Cancer Survivor Dragon Boat Festival in Florence, Italy, July 6,7 & 8!!! What an amazing and inspirational experience for everyone! We won our division and even beat the 1st place team in the division above us. More important than winning in our division our pride is anchored in the knowledge that we all did our best, supported each other in our goals, and left it all on the water.
Our team merged with paddlers from Hope Chest, the Breast Cancer Survivor Dragon boat team in Buffalo in order to have a full roster for the last two International events. We continue to recruit for our team SNCC Hope Floats to paddle at home winter, spring, summer and fall. It is our goal to have at least one full roster from South Niagara Canoe Club for the 2022 event. These International Festivals, while an amazing experience, are only a small part of what Dragon Boating has to offer Breast Cancer Survivors.
The next IBCPC Festival will take place in 2022, somewhere in the world. For more information on International Breast Cancer Survivor Dragon boat Festivals click here
Wonder Woman's Warriors will be participating in Dragon Boat Festivals throughout the paddling seasons. Which festivals we enter are decided by the crew at the beginning of the spring paddling season. All crew members are invited to paddle in these festivals, but by no means is it mandatory.
