To celebrate that women can lead healthy and active lives after breast cancer, the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation’s BC/Yukon Region awarded a total of $58,000 to 23 dragon boat breast cancer survivor teams in B.C. for the 2012 season. In the Shuswap, Friends Abreast with 30 team members and Pink Pistons with 28 members each received $2,000. Each team is required to participate in at least two community events to promote awareness of breast cancer/breast health, each year, in order to qualify. Most teams far surpass that.
