This is a map of Western Manitoba, Canada. As you can see, our dragon boat team members are from all over Western Manitoba.
We would love to connect with anyone who is interested.
The team meets regularly throughout the year for training, fellowship and sharing of information. Each year Waves of Hope joins other breast cancer dragon boat teams in local festivals and one festival outside the province.
Some of our members have travelled further to paddle on "make-up teams" which has given them a fantastic opportunity to connect with breast cancer survivors from throughout the world.
In 2003 the team participated in a Vancouver Festival and returned in 2005 for Abreast In A Boat's 10th Year Celebration Festival with 62 breast cancer survivor teams from around the world. In 2010 the team attended the International Breast Cancer Festival in Peterborough, Ontario with 73 survivor teams from 7 different countries. In 2014 the team attended the International Breast Cancer Festival in Sarasota, Florida with 100 survivor teams. In 2018, 5 members travelled to Florence, Italy.
Our coach encourages personal fitness thoughout the year. In April, we start dryland training and when the ice leaves, we go to Minnedosa Lake.
