Paddle for Pink
2018 is our 12th anniversary!
The Machestic Dragons would like to share how your team participation enables us to support our mission and free cancer program outreach to so many! The Machestic Dragons are a 501 c (3) non-profit breast cancer organization and our mission is:
To raise awareness of breast cancer and the benefits of dragon boat paddling.
To show and mentor others who are weakened by the struggle with breast cancer
that there is life after this disease.
To encourage and empower ourselves and others to face their dragons with an indomitable spirit.
To look beyond today, to a future filled with hope and promise.
In supporting our mission and non-profit status, Paddle for Pink is held as a fundraiser and to increase breast cancer awareness. Proceeds are donated to local programs that provide free services to breast cancer patients/survivors...
A total of $17,000, proceeds from Paddle for Pink 2017, was donated to 3 cancer programs this year:
$10,000 donated to The Breast Cancer Resource Center
$5000 donated to The Healing Consciousness Foundation (HCF) and Bucks County Breast Friends (BCBF)
www.thehealingconsciousness.com or www.hcfbucks.org
$2000 donated to Metavivor www.metavivor.org
To promote good sportsmanship and fairness, please follow these racing division/class guidelines when forming and registering your teams.
Community/Corporate Teams- this division is reserved for novice crews with little or no experience of racing. Entry examples are crews representing corporate (commercial/ business), community organizations (i.e. Fire, Police, EMS, schools, fitness centers, etc.) and Friends/Family groups. Community teams are not members of dragon boat organizations or clubs, typically only race one festival a year, but not more than three festivals. Teams who are not true community teams will be moved to the Sport Team division.
Club/Sport Teams-this division is for crews experienced in racing, paddlers are generally members of dragon boat organizations or clubs, have access to boats and equipment (owned or rented) for practices during the paddling season and has more practice experience than the (1-3) practices the festival host provides.
Breast Cancer Survivor (BCS) is a separate division, not class. Paddlers must be survivors and may be inclusive of female and male crew members. Drummer and steer may be non-BCS. A breast cancer survivor has been defined by the International Breast Cancer Paddlers’ Commission as “a person who has been diagnosed with breast cancer.”
NOTE: BCS teams racing for ERDBA points - paddlers, drummers and steer must all be survivors.
Race classes include:
Open Class - The primary class of racing and there are no restrictions on crew composition.
Women’s Class – All paddlers must be female.
Mixed Class - Crews must consist of an equal number of male and female paddlers (10/10, 9/9, or 8/8).
