Dragons Abreast Toronto

Established in 1997, Dragons Abreast Toronto is the second breast cancer paddler dragon boat team in the world.  Our team is dedicated to improving fitness and quality of life for breast cancer survivors, demonstrating through dragon boat racing that anyone with breast cancer can lead an active life full of adventure. 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.

We are a diverse community of people who have shared a life-changing experience, and the dragon boat is a symbol of our survivorship and strength. We come together to paddle and to race, and we benefit from the friendship, support, and comradery we share with our teammates.

We dedicate our passion and commitment to dragon boat racing to our pink sisters who will always paddle with us in spirit.
