Avalon Dragon Boating is a fully incorporated, non-profit organization that provides support to our team of breast cancer survivors. We are a registered charity, having charitable tax status with Revenue Canada.

We rely on corporate and private donations as well as member participation for our financial and administrative needs. We have wonderful volunteer resources and are run by an elected Board of Directors made up of survivors, family, friends, and supporters.
