The Pink Sensations began in Feb 2004 at
a support group of breast cancer survivors
at Hearth Place, a cancer support facility in
Oshawa, Ontario Canada.
Our logo and team name were created to represent pink “sensational”
survivors paddling hard to ward off the dragons. Our mission and vision is to
promote Breast Cancer awareness to the public and within our communities.
We have been an active member with Pickering Dragon Boat Club/Alkame
since our beginning. We continue to practice 2 times per week at Frenchman’s
Bay in Pickering ON, and compete in 4-5 Festivals per season. Our team
shares in team building experiences and activities to support each other all
year. We are very thankful for the support our families and friends have given
us in our journey. We hope that in the future with our efforts, Breast Cancer
research and treatments will improve to help us all beat this disease.
