A Growing Movement

dragon-logoWelcome to Abreast In A Boat

We are a group of women from Vancouver, Canada and the surrounding metropolitan area, who have had a breast cancer diagnosis. We are a living symbol of hope and a vivid demonstration that there is life after diagnosis. Through the strenuous demands of dragon boat paddling we have learned that we can push the limits of our physical endurance and have fun doing it.

Donate to AIAB

Abreast In A Boat Society uses its donations to fund the dragon boat crews, and to provide education in the fight against breast cancer.

Become a Sponsor

Abreast In A Boat relies on the kindness and generosity of individual and corporate donors and sponsors to help us to continue paddling. Your contribution will make a difference in our community and in the lives of all breast cancer survivors.   Read More +

You may have noticed our short inspirational video that was filmed at the Inlet Spring Regatta in April of this year. We are really excited with our new video and invite you to share this on your social media pages. InspireHealth recently put together a special evening session for Abreast In A Boat. Their dietitian and nutritionist prepared several yummy options for us that were designed to help us power up and stay powered up on “race day” or any physically strenuous day. The class was a lot of fun and very informative, and this session received rave reviews from those of us who were able to attend.
