2018 IBCPC Participatory Dragon Boat Festival – July 2018

Florence, Italy

The Dragon Dream Team has returned from our thrilling journey to the “Olympics” of Dragon Boat racing in Florence, Italy. With a lot of hard work and support from family, friends, corporate and community sponsors, we paddled with 124 Breast Cancer Survivor teams from all over the world.

DDT sent two competitive teams to the festival: Team Dream and Team Hope. Dream finished first among United States contenders and third among all participants. Team Hope finished 80th, a fantastic accomplishment considering many Team Hope members are new paddlers.

In addition to races, the team participated in a Parade of Nations, an international survivor ceremony and sight-seeing.

Dragon Dream Team members participate in many community cancer awareness and fundraising events, including the American Cancer Society’s Making Strides Against Breast Cancer, the Komen Walk for the Cure and The Gathering Place’s Hope Walk.
