Join Us for The Ride of Your Life!

Loving Arms Cancer Outreach, Marietta, and Dragon Boat Atlanta, a Breast Cancer Team,
invite you to be part of a fun filled family event featuring Dragon Boat races with local cities, companies, and individuals. This exciting daylong celebration will support cancer patients and survivors in our community.

What’s a dragon boat race?

Imagine colorful 40 foot long boats with the head and tail of a dragon on each end, filled with 20 paddlers, a drummer, and steersperson competing in a high energy race on the water. This athletic and cultural phenomenon originated over 2,000 years ago in Ancient China, and is presently the fastest growing sport in the world.

Proceeds from the Acworth Dragon Boat Race & Festival will benefit Loving Arms Cancer Outreach and Dragon Boat Atlanta, a Breast Cancer Dragon Boat Team. Loving Arms, founded by two oncology nurses, provides Support Groups, Education, and Financial Assistance for cancer patients in seven northwestern metro counties. In its 14th year in the Atlanta area, Dragon Boat Atlanta is a team dedicated to promoting breast cancer awareness, while providing survivors with the rehabilitation, camaraderie, and recreational exercise of dragon boat paddling. Both Loving Arms and Dragon Boat Atlanta are 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations.
