Taranaki Dragonboat team (breast cancer and supporters) paddling on the Waitara River and participating in regattas in New Zealand.



Taranaki Dragons is grateful for the generous support of many organisations and individuals. Dragon boating is a costly sport – training and race boats, venues, equipment, race entry fees, travel, safety boats, promotion, team and paddler development, uniforms, administration, etc. We aim to be a team that is accessible to all breast cancer survivors and supporters, regardless of financial means, so raising funds is critical to our continued success.

Members work hard throughout the year to raise funds for the team, through participation in various fundraising functions and activities, and through the development of relationships that hopefully lead to donations from corporate sponsors, grant providers and support agencies.
