The Dublin Dragon Boat Regatta with Plurabelle Paddlers
Saturday & Sunday, 14th & 15thSeptember 2013

Plurabelle Paddlers - A breast cancer suppoert group with a difference

This weekend, The Dublin Dragon Boat Regatta will take place at Grand Canal Dock, Dublin 4. It is in association with Plurabelle Paddlers which is a dragon boat team with members who have one thing in common - they have been diagnosed with breast cancer. The dragon boat team which is based in Grand Canal Dock was set up in order for the team memebrs to:
- get fit
- enjoy the mutual support of team mates
- raise awareness of breast cancer.

When the team was set up all of the team members were new to the sport and their inspiration had come from the 150 or so breast cancer dragon boat teams that have been set up all over the world.

All of the crew spaces have already been filled however you can still get a ticket for the Regatta Party Saturday Night at Ely Gastro & tickets for a raffle for flights to Ho Chi Ming City thanks to Etihad.  Purchase your ticket directly from the Plurabelle Paddlerswebsite…………and don’t forget to go down and cheers all of the teams on!!

We are delighted to have two of the teams staying with us here in the Grand Canal Hotel this weekend and we wish everyone taking part the best of luck.  What a great cause! Visit the Plurabelle Paddlers website to get more information, view pictures and videos or make a donation.
