Dragons Abreast Australia is proud to announce that our fantastic member, Kerrie Griffin is this year's flagbearer at the upcoming Australian Dragon Boat Championships (AusChamps) which be held at the Rowing Course, Weston Park, Yarralumla (on Lake Burley Griffin) in Canberra from 17-22 April 2019.
Kerrie has been a longstanding and valued member of Dragons Abreast Canberra for over 10 years and has contributed to dragon boating, breast cancer research and fundraising support significantly in that time.
Kerrie is a fabulous ambassador for the sport and her teammates value her drive in promoting the benefits of dragon boating, locally, nationally and internationally.
Kerrie’s advocacy of people with breast cancer sees her shine in several roles, including as BCNA Consumer representative on the Breast Cancer Treatment Group, SE NSW and ACT, BreastScreen ACT Advisory Group and Cancer Australia Priority Driven Collaborative Research Proposals Committee.
She has been the deserving recipient of DA Canberra’s Dragon Spirit award, for inspiring others, the time she spends volunteering and her commitment to training and to the club and the Kashgar Cup, awarded for her extraordinary contribution to the work of Dragons Abreast Canberra.
Kerrie is the very embodiment of the emotional, social and physical benefits dragon boating provides people following a breast cancer diagnosis and Dragons Abreast Australia is very proud to have her as a member and as the flag bearer at this year's Australian Championships.
