26th March 2007- Fundraiser premiere of Pink Paddlers, in support of UNIFEM, Breast Cancer Foundation and Star Shelter for Women
They come in all shapes and sizes. They could be your mother, your daughter, your sister, your girlfriend, your wife... even you. Ranging from a 65 year-old school principal to a biker chick, half the ladies couldn’t even swim, but still picked up the paddles to form Singapore’s FIRST BREAST CANCER SURVIVORS DRAGONBOAT team : They’ve found strength in being in the same boat, racing against the same disease. In September 2006, these ladies came together to compete against other fellow survivors from all over the world, in the first-ever Breast Cancer Survivor Dragon Boat World Championship - right here in Singapore. http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x1aky8_pink-paddlers-trailer
Recommended by Anonymous Coward: "Watch this with the women that you care for in your life. There's no pretty or sexy way of raising awareness about breast cancer, but everyone who has a mother, a sister, a girlfriend, a daughter, a wife, needs to know that : - Breast Cancer is the no.1 killer disease amongst women in Singapore, and in 2006, more than 1 woman lost her life each day because of this disease, but precious lives can be saved with early detection and there is life beyond breast cancer, as the Pink Paddlers are living proof to this!"
