Wellness Warriors

We are Massachusetts’ first dragon boat team for cancer survivors. We provide a paddling support group for men and women of all ages diagnosed with many different types of cancer.

Wellness Warriors Celebrates 10 Years in 2017!

Thank you to the cancer survivor teams who joined us at the Boston Dragon Boat Festival 2017 to begin our celebrations of our 10th year! It was an incredible kickoff to our next decade of paddling our heart out. Join us as we participate in festivals in Springfield, Hartford, Burlington, and Pawtucket this year.

We are the Wellness Warriors!
Our paddles strike the water in unison
Our boat glides through the river
Our bodies and spirits rise to the challenge

We are cancer survivors!
We are a unique floating support group
We laugh, we paddle hard
We celebrate each other, we heal

​Come awaken your own dragon!
Feel the power of pushing yourself
In ways you never thought possible
