Our Sponsors and Supporters
Dragons Abreast Brisbane is a not-for-profit dragon boat club for breast cancer survivors and their supporters.
Participating in sport and fitness activities has been proven to boost both the mental and physical health of breast cancer survivors, and our group of paddlers is passionate about spreading the message that women and men can lead a happy and fulfilling life after breast cancer treatment.
However, like all sports, it requires money, time and commitment.
Without the assistance of the following generous businesses, kind individuals and understanding organisations, Team Missabittatitti would not be able to offer its highly subsidized fitness services for the growing number of breast cancer survivors that seek out our paddling club.
Since our inception in we have relied on the support of corporations and large organsiations to help us with our goal of keeping fit after a breast cancer diagnosis.
As far back in our history as 2002, our club was lucky enough to be granted 2 dragon boats from the Southbank Corporation. Like all grants and donations, these boats were instruments in establishing Dragons Abreast Brisbane as a club.
MBT relies on State Government community grants such as the Gambling Community Benefit Fund and we are grateful to the generosity of the Community Benefit Funds Unit in allocating funds to us to help us improve a non-profit organisation.
