The Survivorship Dragonboat Team, an incredibly inspiring group of breast cancer survivors, has shown that we can make a difference together.

We were thrilled to accept a cheque due to their energetic paddling, with the funds heading toward our $10 million Oncology Campaign to bring cancer care closer to home.

Survivorship has been paddling since 1999 and has seven teams from the Penticton area. Their vision is to give breast cancer survivors a renewed sense of self-esteem & focus beyond survival. They are always looking for more team members. No previous dragon boat experience is required.  If you are interested in learning more, please reach out to
