    WELCOME TO OUR TEAM    
   

It is with great pride that we introduce ourselves to you –
The BreastStrokes Dragon Boat Team.

Our team consists of energetic, motivated, forward thinking women who have all experienced breast cancer first-hand. We paddle to support each other and to stay strong.

The BreastStrokes Dragon Boat Team formed in Guelph, Ontario, Canada in 1998. From early days using broomsticks to paddle in a (dry) church basement, the team now has our own dragon boat moored on local lakes. The BreastStrokes team works hard to promote awareness of health, life and laughter after breast cancer.

We celebrate life through the pursuit of fitness and wellness, mutual support, community philanthropy, and competition in Dragon Boat Festival races. We believe any person with breast cancer who wishes to dragon boat paddle should have that opportunity, because together, we are all winners! Our goal is to honour the memory of those who have died of breast cancer and spread a message of hope to all people living life after a breast cancer diagnosis.
