- Welcome to the International Breast Cancer Paddlers' Commission
The IBCPC is an international organisation whose
mandate is to encourage the establishment of breast cancer
dragon boat teams, within the framework of participation and inclusiveness.
We support the development of recreational
dragon boat paddling as a contribution to a healthy life style for
those diagnosed with breast cancer.
As the breast cancer dragon boat movement grows internationally, we have a unique opportunity to raise awareness about the disease and about life after breast cancer. We know
a full and and active life is possible. The IBCPC was created to spread this message.
Together we are stronger, our voices are louder and the message is clearer.
Being part of the IBCPC provides breast cancer survivors with the opportunity to network with international teams.
This enables the teams to share information, receive regular newsletters and updates, and also to share best practices with other teams and to interact with fellow paddlers around the world.

The Origins of Breast Cancer Paddling

Did you know that Dr. Don McKenzie, a professor at the University of British Columbia, started it all through a study about the impact of repetitive upper body exercise on women with breast cancer? At the time it was believed that it would create or exacerbate lymphedema. Dr McKenkie set out to prove this theory wrong. Read more.
