The International Breast Cancer Paddlers Commission holds a Breast Cancer Survivors Dragon Boat Festival once every 4 years. Some members of Wonder Women's Warriors participated in Peterborough, Ontario in 2010, and Sarasota, Florida in 2014. Most recently Wonder Woman's Warriors participated in the 2018 festival in Florence, Italy.
The 2022 Festival will be held somewhere in the world. We eagerly await the announcement of the venue and date, but we must be patient as we won't know until sometime in 2019!!!! Our club is discussing the possibility of putting in a bid to hold this event in Welland, Ontario. How exciting is that??? Other possibilities that we are aware of are Singapore, Taiwan, Nova Scotia & New Brunswick Canada, and Belfast Ireland.

Without a doubt these festivals are among the most powerful, emotional, supportive, inspirational events a breast cancer survivor will ever attend. The above picture is what 4,000 thriving survivors gathered in a Plaza in Florence, Italy looks like.
