The Cape Breastoners Dragon Boat Team Society was officially incorporated on May 31, 2002, but interest initially began in the fall of 2001. We have the privilege of paddling on the beautiful Mira River. We are proud to be the first Dragon Boat team to represent Cape Breton.
Our team is comprised of breast cancer survivors young and old. One unique aspect of our group is the tremendous amount of support we receive from family and friends.
We, the Cape Breastoners, are the most fortunate of women. Many people came forward to help us in the form of financial support, moral support, and coaching. Many have given their time, talents, facilities and other resources.
