The Regatta's aim is to raise awareness of breast cancer in the Canberra region through the sport of dragon boat racing. Funds raised will support Dragons Abreast Canberra and Dragons Abreast Australia to continue its work in promoting dragon boating to breast cancer survivors as a beneficial exercise, celebrating wellness, fitness, fun and camaraderie for breast cancer survivors and their supporters.
Spectators are welcome to witness the excitement of this annual charity event. Expect to see some amazing costumes on the day and enjoy the BBQ, coffee and cakes! Lots of categories including fastest team, best dressed and best tent site.
On the day, you can leave a message of support or remembrance on a Pink Lady Silhouette in our BCNA Mini Field of Women. We will also hold a 'Flowers on the Water' ceremony. Flowers on the Water is a very special ceremony conducted by members of Dragons Abreast Australia to honour those who have, and are continuing to travel, the path of a breast cancer diagnosis, as well as remembering those who have lost their battle.
Dragons Abreast Australia is sponsored by Specialised Therapeutics Australia, an international biopharmaceutical company with strategic focus and expertise in Australia, New Zealand and South East Asia.
With the highest professional and ethical standards, Specialised Therapeutics Australia commercialise therapies and technologies that uniquely fulfil the unmet medical needs of the community.
