Mission

Dragon Boat at the Beach is a team of cancer survivors promoting positive emotional, spiritual and physical well-being through the ancient sport of Dragon Boat racing.  By celebrating each victory, we “awaken the dragon within” with encouragement, inspiration, hope and camaraderie.

History

Dragon Boat at the Beach, founded in 2007, was formed so that local cancer survivors could come together on a regular basis for spiritual, emotional and physical healing.  Members participate in the Dragon Boat sport, which involves a crew of 20 paddlers, a steersman and a coxswain racing a distance of up to 500 meters in a boat with a width of only four feet, and a length of forty feet.  Through the shared experience of paddling and related social events, Dragon Boat at the Beach constitutes an active form of support, emphasizing a positive life after cancer.


In 2014, Dragon Boat at the Beach disengaged from Georgetown Hospital System and became a Non-Profit 501C3 entity.
