About Us

The Lake Revelstoke Dragon Boat Society was founded on August 26, 2005. We are a non-profit society registered in British Columbia. Our fiscal year, and our membership year, begins November 1. Our Annual General Meetings are held each spring.


Our mandate is:

  • To promote public awareness of issues relating to cancer, including risk factors, prevention, treatment, rehabilitation, and research
  • To facilitate physical activities for cancer survivors and supporters, and to educate and encourage activities which promote good health.
  • To provide support, encouragement and assistance to persons dealing with cancer.
  • To honour the memory of persons whose lives have been lost to cancer.
  • To help persons who have been diagnosed with cancer understand that they can still lead full active lives despite the limitations imposed by this disease.
  • To secure and manage donations and to disburse funds to organizations involved in cancer research and treatment.
  • To pursue such activities as are incidental to these purposes and for which the dragon boat is an educational symbol of the ongoing struggle to overcome cancer.
