The Dragon Dream Team of Northeast Ohio is a group of breast cancer survivors. As they say, "We participate in dragon boat racing to make a difference - to raise awareness about breast cancer and to encourage those living with breast cancer to live full and active lives.

The Dragon Dream team is a non-profit group. Our goal is to send a message of hope to people living with this disease and to those who support them."
