Pink Phoenix Goes to Italy

Pink Phoenix Goes to Italy

Portland's Pink Phoenix dragon boat team will be in Italy this month for an international Dragon Boat Fest for breast cancer survivors. 

Instituted in 2005, the event is held every four years in countries around the world. The festival is an international non-competitive participatory event targeting Breast Cancer Survivors teams who engage in Dragon Boat activities as post-operative rehabilitation.

The Pink Phoenix team from Portland will field two boats in Italy: Heart and Soul. Each boat will have 22 members on board who will all participate in the events scheduled on July 6-8 in Florence.
