IBCPC Dragon Boat Festival – Italy 2018

Ciao! Members of Breasts Ahoy, along with paddlers from New Glasgow’s Women Alike Abreast A River, formed a composite team – the Maritime Dragons – to participate in the International Breast Cancer Paddlers Commission Dragon Boat Festival in Florence, Italy this past summer (July 6-8, 2018 – http://www.florencebcs2018.org/).

The survivor team, along with paddling supporters and loved ones, got to spend two weeks in this beautiful country and stayed in three cities. The tailor-made schedule was provided by Go Ahead Tours, and shared by dragon boat travelers from two other Maritime cities. The trip was so special and memorable that it was recently featured on their travel blog:  https://travelblog.goaheadtours.com/breast-cancer-survivors-celebrate-life-travel-on-a-tailor-made-tour/
