Members of DRACO’s Pink Phantoms crew were honored to be a part of Lutheran Medical Center’s BCS Pink Hat Tea again this year, an annual event for the benefit of newly diagnosed and long-term breast cancer survivors.  It was a wonderful opportunity to gain visibility and support for our breast cancer survivor dragon boat program, and we added a number of prospective BCS paddlers to our roster!

Phantom Dragons / Pink Phantoms Race in Colorado Springs

Congratulations to the Phantom Dragons / Pink Phantoms crew for their outstanding performance in the 2K16 GWN/Colorado Springs International Dragon Boat Festival. This was a great event, very professionally organized and run, and featuring a higher level of competition than the Colorado Dragon Boat Festival.  A highlight of the day was the Cancer Survivor Ceremony. It was great to see the two cancer survivor groups, including our own Pink Phantoms, get some well-deserved recognition.
