Breast Cancer Dragon Boat Teams are Creating Waves of Excitement

The IBCPC Dragon Boat Festival is coming to Sarasota in October 2014 and the excitement is making waves…in a good way. The 3-day event is projected to bring in up to 3,000 breast cancer survivors from around the world. The IBCPC has held three international dragon boat festivals since its inception. Previous festivals were held in Vancouver, British Columbia (2005), Caloundra, Australia (2007), and in Peterborough, Canada (2010). The 2014 event will be the first time this event will be held in the USA.  Being that the event will be held on our homeland, it is a great time to join in on the fun!
