DRAGON BOAT PINK FESTIVAL 26-27-28th JUNE 2015
AMICI DEL FIUME TURIN
For a three-day exiciting sport event! Fun is guaranteed to both paddlers and spectators. The event will be held at “Amici del Fiume” on the Po river with the marvellous background of TURIN, a surprising baroque jewel. The regatta is the main fund-raising for DRAGONETTE TORINO ONLUS, a non-profit foundation committed to raising awareness of the project “Abreast in a boat”
(fight cancer with your paddle).
In the past four years, the DRAGONETTE also thanks to many supporters, has been working to raise awareness, to inform and support and give hope to “the otherwise lucky women” (as the Dragonettes call themselves). As for all the other BCS (Breast Cancer Survivors) teams worldwide, our aim is to help the women who have or have had breast cancer, especially to help them understand that it is possible to have a full and dynamic life even with or after the illness.
Paddling on the boat, togheter, is helpful in supporting eachother, overcoming fear, to meet new friends and to be proud of personal achievements. It is a way to break the silence about cancer. On Sunday 28th June, supporters and sponsors will be encouraged to paddle with BCS/Mixed teams. Apply now and create your crew!
At the end of the day we will give prizes to the most original crews (for clothing, equipment or formation).
