Hope Afloat

We are the Survivors of Breast Cancer helping each other to reclaim healthy, joyful lives through the ancient sport of Dragon Boat racing. We are a team that accepts any and every breast cancer survivor regardless of her age, physical strength or athletic ability.


We race competitively from May through October and we train year round at locations in and around Philadelphia. The true impact of what we do is measured in the friendships, the support and comfort, and the renewed zest for life that we give to each other. At a time when many of us felt loss and fear, we have given each other strength and purpose. We are Hope Afloat.
