Some local Warriors are looking for more members to join their ranks.
The Warriors of Hope will be hosting their Annual General Meeting on Wednesday, February 15th at 6 pm at 22 Wing Ayr Mess Hall (14 Duxford Road, Building 14), with the public welcome to attend.
The Warriors of Hope are a team of Breast Cancer Survivors who participate in Dragon Boat Racing as an example of what people can accomplish after breast cancer. Officials say with the support of volunteers and associate members, “this team of determined and energetic individuals has become a role model for cancer survivors, in not only North Bay but also wherever they compete”.
The team celebrated their 20th anniversary in 2019 and was recently honoured by the North Bay Sports Hall of Fame. Last year, the team won gold at the Concord Pacific Dragon Boat Festival in Vancouver, British Columbia.
The Warriors are looking for both paddlers as well as board members for a 2-year term.
