Dragon boating and breast cancer survivors have a deep rooted history and a strong partnership which we continue to embrace with our Breast Cancer Survivors Challenge Cup. This long standing division was created to celebrate our Breast Cancer Survivor teams' commitment to dragon boating and inspiring perseverance. The strength of the teams in this division is evident in their determination and desire to be the first one to cross the finish line.
