Have fun & support our CanSurvive Dragon Boat Team.

Our team is made up of Breast Cancer Survivors from all walks of life and a range of different financial circumstances. Our aim is to ensure that everyone within the team has the same opportunity to participate in all Dragon Boat events.

We have just completed the New Zealand Dragon Boat Season and are now focusing on fund raising to attend the Australian Regatta later this year.

We have organised a fun night of clean, classy comedy with Gerard V Hypnotist.

Dr. Don McKenzie, a sports medicine physician at the University of British Columbia in Canada, launched Abreast In A Boat in 1996 to test the myth that repetitive upper-body exercise in women treated for breast cancer encourages lymphoedema.

Dr. McKenzie believed that by following a special exercise and training program, women could avoid lymphoedema and enjoy active, full lives. As the program was followed, participants were carefully monitored by a sports medicine physician, a physiotherapist and a nurse. Dr. McKenzie's theory was proven correct. No new cases of lymphoedema occurred and none of the existing cases became worse.

From a medical study involving one boat of 25 women in 1996, breast cancer dragon boating now reaches around the world, with 117 teams in 12 countries … and growing…

Being diagnosed with Breast Cancer and then facing the gauntlet of treatments to ensure the best chance of survival brings out an inner strength that is definitely part of what makes our Dragon Boating Team outstanding. We are an enthusiastic group of survivors who thrive on the positive outcome that being involved in a Dragon Boating team provides. As well as gaining support within the team – we hope our profile shows other women that positives do come from such a challenging journey.
