Welcome to DragonBoat Beaufort
Local cancer survivors, and water sport enthusiasts who wish to support them, have formed a Beaufort County mixed recreational and racing DragonBoat team. We offer male and female survivors the opportunity to "hit the restart button" by participating in this fabulous, team-centric wellness program out on the water.
Twenty paddlers sitting side-by-side in a dragon-headed 42 foot-long vessel, paddling furiously to the beat of an insistent drummer. The goal: physical wellness and psychological well-being through this thrilling, team-oriented support program that even offers opportunities to travel to competitions worldwide. Being cut, radiated and medicated by cancer treatments needs an offset.
