EMPIRE DRAGONS NEW YORK
The Empire Dragon Boat Team’s mission is to spread
awareness of the sport of dragon boating and its benefits to
women who have battled cancer. We raise public awareness of
issues related to cancer survivorship, we advocate for healthy
lifestyles and we provide funding in the fight against cancer.
Our team was formed in 2009. We are the only Breast Cancer
Survivor Dragon Boat Team in New York City and we belong to
the International Breast Cancer Paddlers Commission.
In addition, the Empire Dragon Boat Team NYC is
committed to improving the health and environment
of all New Yorkers. To this end, we dedicate our time
and resources to several projects to call attention to
the water quality around New York City.
