Dragons Abreast Brisbane Incorporated
We are part of Dragons Abreast Australia (DAA) which is the national organisation comprised of breast cancer survivors (and some very special supporters) of various ages from a great variety of backgrounds, athletic abilities and interests.
Our team name is Missabittatitti (affectionately known as MBT).
Our paddlers are also members of Brisbane River Dragons Dragon Boat and Outrigger Canoe Club Incorporated. Established in 1998 Brisbane River Dragons Dragon Boat and Outrigger Canoe Club Incorporated (BRD) is the oldest dragon boat club in Brisbane. We are a competitive yet social paddling club that train and compete throughout the year.

High on our list of priorities is having fun, trying new things, meeting interesting people and being involved in a challenging, physical activity whilst promoting breast cancer awareness.
