Abreast In A Boat was represented at Willowbrook Mall in Langley on Sunday February 2, 2014.
As part of a Chinese New Year Celebration, 10 members of Abreast with FORTitude along with three crews from the Fort Langley Canoe Club, promoted dragon boat paddling. There was a video of dragon boat races and a demonstration of how we paddle.
With our AIAB pamphlets and postcards as well as information from CBCF, we took the opportunity to raise awareness about breast cancer. We talked with a number of breast cancer survivors as well as the general public about Abreast In A Boat, it’s history, and the many teams now around the world. As a dragon wound its way through the mall with lots of families following, we hoped to encourage others to live a healthy, active lifestyle.
