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
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

BreastStrokes is seeking Adult Female Paddlers.
We are a breast cancer survivor team,
but we welcome Supporter Paddlers as well.
There is no fitness test to join, however,
if you are a breast cancer survivor,
you need to have finished treatment before starting to paddle.
Please get in touch with any questions.
