Dragons Abreast is a national organisation comprised of predominantly breast cancer survivors who spread the message of breast cancer awareness through the sport of Dragon Boat racing.
The Rum Paddlers are a team made up of staff who work at Sydney Hospital and Sydney Eye Hospital. It is comprised of nurses, doctors, administration staff and whoever else would like to join the team. We paddle for fun and fitness and for a bit of healthy competition at the regattas.
We are also committed to fundraising.
This year we are paddling for Chinese New Year festival in the category of Social Team. We will be raising money for the Sydney Eye Hospital Foundation and the newly established Sydney Hospital Hand Foundation.
