Our Team

We are Ottawa’s only breast cancer survivor dragon boat team. Currently we have over 40 members of various ages and backgrounds supporting each other. We welcome new members, whether they have just finished active treatment or have long recovered from breast cancer. Though breast cancer mostly affects women, men who have had breast cancer are also welcome to join our team.

Our Home

We paddle out of the Rideau Canoe Club in the beautiful setting of Mooney’s Bay in the heart of Ottawa.

Our Passion

The benefits of dragon boating for breast cancer survivors are many. Improved fitness and health, reducing lymphedema, and camaraderie and support of other survivors. For all general enquiries or enquiries regarding Membership, Sponsorship, Race Coordination, Fundraising and Communications, send an email to info@bustingoutottawa.ca

Announcement - 50/50

Did you know that the first Breast Cancer Survivor (BCS) Dragon Boat team was formed in 1996 in Vancouver, BC by sports medicine specialist Dr. Don McKenzie (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Breast_cancer_survivors%27_dragon_boating)?  Busting Out Ottawa was formed 2 years later! 

Busting Out Ottawa Dragon Boat Club (BOODBC) early bird prize draw is only 3 days away!

BOODBC is a Not For Profit (NFP) and relies on members fees, fundraising and donations to keep going. To keep our membership fees to an affordable level, we engage in some major fundraisers over the course of the year, and we rely on sponsors to help cover the costs of running our club.
