BIONEN is pleased to support the Florence Dragon Lady team, the Florentine dragon boat team, made up of women lived through breast cancer which with the support of the Service "Donna come Prima", of Firenze della Lega Italiana contro i Tumori - LILT and Canottieri Comunali Firenze, will take part in 2014 IBCPC Participatory Dragon Boat Festival.
The International Breast Cancer
Paddler Commission (IBCPC) organizes every 4 years an international meeting with conferences, workshops and above all dragonboat races and ceremony flowers.
The festival is the most important opportunity of meeting and sharing for women in pink around the world, as well as a place for discussion among professionals, doctors, psychologists, physiotherapists and athletes.
For women who are going through or have passed the cancer ordeal, this is a valuable and emotional sharing moment.
The International Commission on Women in Pink brings together over 200 teams of women operated for breast cancer who practice dragonboat all over the world and is the most important international organization whose purpose is to encourage the formation of teams of women in pink.
At the festival in 2014 will be about 100 teams, as well as delegations of teams and individual registrations.
Florence is proud of having been registered as a full team (22 women, comprising 20 paddlers, 1 drummer and 1 helmsman).
BIONEN is proud to participate with a girl of our team and give our contribute to the whole team!
