Support the Silver Lining Foundation

Silver Lining Dragon Boat Racing and outrigger paddling Team is the first breast cancer survivor team in Montana

During the summer months, we hit the water 3 or 4 times week on Flathead Lake in Big Arm. We also train year round in our own gym, which includes strength training and paddling ergometers.

We are grateful to Ben Yonce (Langel and Associates) and Scott Smith (United Locators), for graciously allowing us to house our gym in their building.

We are also grateful to Peak trainer, Mike Rankin, who trains us year-round, 3x/week. Mike has been dedicated to our group for the past 5 years.

This summer, we plan on being on the water by mid-May in both our dragon boats as well as our OC6’s (outrigger canoes). We will also be hosting a officials training camp in June.

We are hosting our biggest fundraiser of the year, our 5th Annual Paddle Palooza July 11-13, which includes sprint races and a 30-mile voyage. We will be joined by paddlers from Canada, Maui, Tahiti and the Pacific Northwest. We will also be competing in August at the Calgary Dragon Boat Festival and we will be helping to bring back the Montana Dragon Boat Festival, to be held in Polson, Montana in September.

We know that regular exercise can reduce the rate of recurrence by 40-50% and by continuing to create a community of survivors we can continue to be beacons of hope for others.
