What we’re about

Healing Dragons is a non-profit, competitive dragon boat team for cancer survivors, friends and family. We are mothers, daughters, fathers, sons, family, and friends with a common vision…

Our Vision

To inspire, encourage, and support survivors of ALL cancers to triumph over the disease.

Our Mission

Our mission is to use dragon boating to help survivors paddle for wellness, mental and physical health.

We practice weekly on Mountain Island Lake and compete in 5-7 races across the southeast to support dragon boating and cancer survivors. The Healing Dragons are everyday people dealing with extraordinary issues, who choose to come together to share in the journey of lives impacted by cancer. Each person has their own story, and yet we all come together to create a new story; one of friendship, dedication, teamwork and support.

Our goal is to reach out to all people who have been touched by cancer.

Join us for a paddle at Latta Plantation Park west of Huntersville NC.
