One in nine women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime. Five thousand Canadian women die from it every year. That’s 14 of our mothers, sisters, daughters and friends every day. What is known is that early detection is crucial.

To date, with the help of our dedicated sponsors, volunteers, and community members, the Windsor Essex Dragon Boat Festival has donated over 3.4 million dollars to our benefactors, ensuring that state-of-the-art breast cancer detection and treatment equipment is available to patients close to home.
