Breast of Texas Dragon Boat Team's Annual Fundraising Event benefiting breast cancer suvivors.
Join us for a fun time and help raise funds for the first breast cancer survivor dragon boat team in the Dallas\ Fort Worth Area: Breast of Texas.
The IBCPC Dragon Boat Festival is held every four years by the International Breast Cancer Paddler’s Commission for thousands of breast cancer survivors from around the world that participate in dragon boating to promote health and well-being, and spread breast cancer awareness.
In 2018, Florence, Italy will host this event where approximately 120 breast cancer survivor teams from around the world will compete. The Breast of Texas is committed to participating in its first ever International Festival in Florence, Italy, while representing the Lone Star State of Texas in promoting personal strength, joy, hope, camaraderie, positive energy, health and well-being. Tax-deductible donations to the Breast of Texas Florence Fund will go towards the team's registration and travel costs which are estimated to exceed $2500 per participant. Visit www.florencebcs2018.org for more information about the 2018 International Festival. Visit our Florence Fund Donation Summary Page to view a list of donors and our fundraising progress.
We are preparing a feast of BBQ for our neighbors, friends, and family. How could you say no to this surefire good time with unlimited BBQ? We also have many fun games planned for you, or you can bring your own frisbee, volleyball, badminton, football, etc.
We will be introducing our brand new pink dragon boat, Stella, speaking why we formed the team and how it helps our community. Breast of Texas's very own Katie Maciulenicz-Gass Ph.D. will be at the event to tell us about the positive impact this sport has for breast cancer survivors.
