Dragons Abreast attracts new crew

THE Dragons Abreast come and try day attracted 12 breast cancer survivors from the region yesterday.

Dragons Abreast Australia Queensland representative Jo Parry was happy with the amount of people who attended the event.

“It was a great day and great to see some new ladies come and have a go at dragon boating with Dragons Abreast,” she said.

“I think they enjoyed themselves and I think they're going to come back.”

She said most ladies went on board and took the boat for a paddle on the water.

“It was just great to see the boat full of pink,” she said.

“And the ladies got some exercise.”

Ms Parry said Dragons Abreast was a social group for breast cancer survivors.

“It was great to be here and meet all these ladies,” she said.

“The group is all about fun.”

The group encourages any breast cancer survivor to contact 1300 889 556.
