On the 11th of May we lost Kathleen Moriarty - An inspirational Leader, Founder, Team Captain, Sweep, fellow Dragon boater and Passionate Promoter of our Club and the sport of Dragon Boating to the very last.
That she was able to realize so many of her dreams this year is a huge consolation to us all.
Kathleen’s joy at attending Nationals 2023 and the International Breast Cancer Paddling Festival as part of the Taranaki Pinks at Lake Karapiro was evident to all who saw her.
Her legacy lives on with the very existence of our Club and her passion, generosity of spirit, attention to detail, knowledge and drive will be missed by us all.
Taranaki Dragons President, Sharon Taylor
