Welcome to Dragons Abreast

We are Toronto’s first breast cancer paddler dragon boat team, dedicated to improving fitness and quality of life for breast cancer survivors. Established in 1997, we are now one of over 200 breast cancer paddler teams worldwide that serve to promote dragon boating as part of a healthy lifestyle and unique support for people diagnosed with breast cancer.

We are determined to keep our community fully inclusive for people of all ages, races, genders, sexual orientations, differing abilities, ethnic origins and economic circumstances. We are a diverse group of people who have shared a life-changing experience, and the dragon boat is a symbol of our survivor-ship and strength. By taking part in this challenging, yet gratifying sport, we strive to achieve our personal best in hopes of empowering and inspiring others who are going through this journey.
