Our Story

We are GoPink!DC, Washington’s only dragon boat team for women touched by breast cancer. Through participation, women experience the healing power of community and the physical benefits of an activity that can relieve the side effects of treatment. We collaborate with local and national partners to raise awareness of breast cancer's impact, promote investment in treatment research and expand knowledge of dragon boating's therapeutic benefits. We race in festivals against other breast cancer teams, in a spirit of competition and camaraderie. The vibrant gatherings are transformational and teach survivors and supporters that breast cancer is an experience, not an identity. Tournaments support healing, growth and offer poignant opportunities for remembrance of sisters who have died. We are proud members of a worldwide community of breast cancer survivors who have discovered the physical, emotional, and mental restorative benefits of the addictive sport of dragon boat paddling. We are also very proud to support Dragonheart Vermont and the McLure Respite House.
