The Empire Dragon Boat Team’s mission is to spread awareness of the sport of dragon boating and its benefits to women who have battled cancer. We raise public awareness of issues related to cancer survivorship, we advocate for healthy lifestyles and we provide funding in the fight against cancer.

Formed in 2009, we are the only Breast Cancer Survivor Dragon Boat Team in New York City and we belong to the International Breast Cancer Paddlers Commission.

If you are a woman cancer survivor and would like to join our team, please contact us.


Please join us for the Empire Dragon Boat Jennifer’s Annual Flushing Bay Shoreline Clean Up in conjunction with Riverkeeper Sweep 2015.
