Abreast Of Life Dragon Boat Team
Central Vancouver Island
WHO WE ARE
Since 1998, ABREAST OF LIFE has been a team of breast cancer survivors who proudly represent Central Vancouver Island in the dragon boat community. We are a diverse group of women from Nanaimo to Qualicum Bay who believe in the importance of exercise after breast cancer to improve strength & wellness.
WHAT WE DO
We bond through team work and camaraderie afforded by the sport of dragon boating. Lots of laughter and the occasional sore muscle are evidence that we strive to be the best we can be!
WHY WE PADDLE
We raise awareness that women who are breast cancer survivors can live full and active lives. We are proud to show how much we can achieve as a dragon boat team.
WHERE TO FIND US
Our on-water training runs from April to October twice a week in Nanoose Bay. In fall and winter, we have on-land training sessions to maintain our levels of fitness.
WANT TO KNOW MORE?
We always welcome new women to join our team. You do not need to be athletic or know how to paddle. You don't even have to know how to swim! The only requirement to join our team is that you are a breast cancer survivor. Let dragon boating help you regain your fitness level, pride in yourself, and zest for life!
