Our History

Our History

 The Prior Chest Nuts are a group of dedicated breast cancer survivors who have come together to enjoy and promote the sport of dragon boat paddling. Twice a week we can be found at the White Lake Marina honing our paddling skills. The Chest Nuts also support and participate in local festivals and community events.

Our History

Our History

Our History

 The journey started in January 2010 at an Arnprior and District Breast Cancer Support Group (ADBCSG) meeting, where new members met and shared a dream to paddle in a local dragon boat festival.   The Prior Chest Nuts were formed, dedicated to supporting the development of recreational dragon boat paddling as a contribution to a healthy lifestyle for men and women diagnosed with breast cancer.  Every May since, we have been ready to hit the water on White Lake. We have participated in dragon boat festivals across Ontario, as well as, Sarasota, Florida and Florence, Italy.
