Community participation makes this festival special. Last year 45 teams competed in the exciting races. The Machestics invite you to form a team to compete in this fun event. Up to 20 paddlers can make up a dragon boat team and race against other teams in their category. Last year 8 breast cancer survivor teams gathered from the tri state region and in 2013 we welcome back 4 of those teams that have registered early to take advantage of the discounted early bird price. Teams of area educators, neighbors and friends, business sponsored teams, semi-professionals and teams compiled of all women make up this potpourri of fun lovers that will compete for medals and bragging rights while helping to support this charitable cause. It’s a fun event that benefits local families affected by breast cancer.
All registered teams are given 1 practice on the water with coaching and equipment provided by the Machestics. A free gift to commemorate this event will be distributed to all paddlers at Paddle for Pink. The cost for entering a team in PFP is $825. After April 30 the cost of a team to enter is $900.
