Formed in 2004, Team Survivor Tampa Bay’s “Pink Dragon Ladies®” joins a worldwide network of hundreds of cancer survivor teams for women.  Since our founding, hundreds of survivors have paddled with us. 

A dragon boat team consists of 20 paddlers sitting two abreast, plus a steersperson who steers the boat from the rear and a drummer who sits at the front.  The team of paddlers work in unison to propel the boat forwards from a standing start.
