Studies have shown that dragon boating increases the overall health and length of survival while decreasing the incidence of lymphedema following treatment for breast cancer.

The Phoenix Desert Dragons dragon boat team is the premier Arizona breast cancer survivor team.

Our mission is to encourage and empower breast cancer survivors through the sport of dragon boating by promoting a healthy lifestyle, balance, and mindfulness within a fun, positive, and supportive community. We strive to enrich and enhance the quality of life for breast cancer survivors. We serve as a source of hope, strength, and inspiration. Paddling together creates unbreakable bonds and lifelong friendships.

We proudly represent Phoenix and Arizona on and off the water.

Core Values:
Empowerment | Community-Enrichment | Strength | Inspiration | Friendship
