GoPink!DC is the Washington, DC area's first dragon boat team for breast cancer survivors and their supporters. GoPink!DC was formed in 2006 by two NIH scientists, one of whom is GoPink!DC's head coach, and an avid dragon boat athlete who competes in international competitions. He had become aware of the rapidly growing number of dragon boat teams of breast cancer survivors on all continents. For many breast cancer survivors, dragon boat racing has come to signify support for breast cancer awareness and to provide hope for survivors that there is high quality of life after breast cancer. We are based along the Anacostia River, just east of Capitol Hill, adjacent to the historic Seafarers Yacht Club.
