Hope Floats Breast Cancer Survivor Dragon Boat
No experience necessary

No age limits


Hope Floats is SNCC's Breast Cancer Survivor (BCS) Dragon Boat crew. We support one another while improving and maintaining fitness. Sharing the benefits of exercise and team participation through dragon boat paddling with breast cancer survivors is our main focus.

Hope Floats' members are BCS from the Niagara Region and beyond. Creating an atmosphere of inclusiveness, we are also members of SNCC's mixed crew Canal Dragons. This allows us to train and race with our friends and families and still participate in events with a BCS only division.


We believe that true winners are people who support their community by engaging others in becoming more physically fit and healthier in a positive understanding environment, while learning new skills, having fun and enjoying the mutual support that only a team can provide.


We participate in BCS festivals including the annual Hope Floats Challenge and the International Breast Cancer Paddling Commission (IBCPC) festival that is held once every four years.  We also participate in BCS specific events, such as fundraising, socials, community outreach and additional practices leading up to BCS festivals.  Participation in festivals is not mandatory.


Some of us have been paddling for just one season, others have been paddling for more than a decade. Some love to race in Dragon Boat festivals, others prefer not to compete at all. The commitment level is a personal choice.


Due to Covid-19 in person meet and greets were cancelled, we extended our outreach by developing online workouts for breast cancer survivors and their supporters. 


Next Hope Floats Meet & Greet @ Wellspring Niagara TBA.


Remember, we are all Canal Dragons!   Please see Canal Dragons information to register.
