"Abreast of Life" is a group of breast cancer survivors living in Christchurch, New Zealand.

And we paddle a dragon boat!

While fund raising brings us together frequently, we also enjoy fun weekend breaks away together, with Hanmer Springs and Akaroa being favourite getaway destinations. We also enjoy midwinter dinners, breakfasts and coffee breaks, and walking as a group round Hagley Park, on the Port Hills, or as part of organised public fun run/walks..

Fund raising

The team is involved in intensive fund raising (eg Sausage sizzle) to pay entry fees, travel and uniform costs.

We are generally willing to try anything that will bring a return to team funds.

Activities have included selling beer at AMI (Jade) Stadium, pumpkin picking, assisting at triathlon and walking events, warehouse stocktaking, preparing and packing home brew kits, labelling breakfast cereals, kitchen assistants at major catering events and balls, sausage sizzles, etc.
