A Growing Movement | About Us

Abreast In A Boat is a registered charitable society whose mission is to demonstrate that those who have been diagnosed with breast cancer can live full, active and healthy lives.  Abreast In A Boat also has a strong commitment to enhancing breast cancer awareness and to support breast cancer research. We have several paddling venues in Vancouver and the surrounding metropolitan area.  We paddle together, support, learn and laugh with each other.  We break the silence of cancer, make new friends in the process, and we encourage others to get in the boat with us.
