We Keep Movin'

We are women of all ages and backgrounds, from newly diagnosed to long-time survivors. We embrace the philosophy that EXERCISE IS THE BEST MEDICINE

We Paddle

Dragon boat racing and other forms of repetitive upper body exercise are safe and actually beneficial for individuals treated for breast cancer and symptoms such as lymphedema. Recent research also indicates that regular exercise can reduce the risk of recurrence by more than 40%.

We Compete

Dragon boat racing allows us to nurture the athlete in each of us and to appreciate the value of working together toward a common goal: not only to survive but to THRIVE​

How can I support dragon boat racing?

We appreciate any support that aids in our mission of empowering breast cancer survivors….in mind, body and spirit.  Contact us with any questions on how you can help!

What is dragon boat racing?

​Dragon boat racing began more than 2,000 years ago in China and eventually made its way to North America in the 1980s. Now considered the fastest growing team water sport in the world, it features sleek, slender canoes decorated with dragon heads and propelled by 20 paddlers working in unison. The drummer beats out the pace, while a steersperson guides the dragon boat on its course. Worldwide there are more than 240 dragon boat racing teams composed of all breast cancer survivors. Silver Lining  Montana is the first dragon boat racing team representing the great state of Montana.
