AGAINST THE WIND
Founded in 2001 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Against
the Wind is the Breast Cancer Survivor Crew of the
Philadelphia Flying Phoenix Women’s Dragon Boat Team. We
are competitive paddlers and have competed in regattas in
the eastern United States, Canada, and Australia.
We are a team committed to year-round community
service projects and to raising awareness of breast cancer.
Our mission is to share with breast cancer survivors and their
supporters the hope, empowerment, and joy that come with
recovering health and strength after this dreaded diagnosis.
Where there is hope for one of us, there is hope for all of us.
We’re in this boat together
