The Healing Dragons is a competitive dragon boat team launched in 2009, with a focus on cancer survivorship.  We are mothers, daughters, fathers, sons, family, and friends with a common vision…

Our Vision

To inspire, encourage, and support survivors of ALL cancers to triumph over the disease.

Our Mission

Our mission is to use dragon boating to help survivors paddle for wellness.
