HEART AND SOUL – LIGHTHOUSE DRAGON BOAT TEAM
The “Heart and Soul” Dragon Boat Team is a compilation of two
breast cancer teams from Florida, USA. “Heart and Soul Sisters” from
Melbourne was established in 2013 and “Lighthouse Dragons SOS”
from Jupiter was established in 2015. Both teams are made up of
athletes, both survivors and supporters who want to share in the mission
of increased health and heartfelt friendships through dragon boating.
The dragon is a symbol of strength, unity and leadership. For
breast cancer survivors, dragon boating has become a symbol of
their struggle against cancer and their celebration of life; giving
them confidence to no longer think of themselves as “victims”, but
as “thrivers” – courageous athletes fighting back at the disease.
We say – “Doctors saved our LIVES, but dragon boating saved
our SOULS. We are so very honored and proud to be a part of this
amazing event with our fellow survivors from around the world.
