Pink Champagne – Breast Cancer Dragon Boat Team
Pink Champagne Breast Cancer Dragon Boat Team is based in Christchurch in Dorset. Established in 2008, they joined 150 teams worldwide acting as role models to inspire and encourage other cancer survivors to achieve the physical, psychological and social benefits of this activity.
The team meet every Saturday morning throughout the year and on Monday evenings in the summer, paddling up the river sometimes gently and sometimes training for a race.
As a Charity they are very dependent on funding and are delighted to have received a grant from the Pink Ribbon Foundation enabling them to buy a new 10-man boat to help with their training and to accommodate more members.
Pink Champagne strive to support each other – not only as a team in the boat but emotionally too – to demonstrate the advantages of a positive outlook combined with exercise. And we love to celebrate Life.
