JOIN THE BATTLE. Beat Rare Cancers.
Welcome to our team's page!
Please join the Empire Dragon Boat Team in the fight to beat rare cancers. We are participating in this fundraiser in memory of and in honor of our close friend and teammate Eliza Adams. An inspiration to all of us, Eliza was a tireless advocate for people with cancer, both as a patient advocate at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center and in her volunteer work with SHARE. She was the force behind our team first joining Cycle for Survival and we will continue to ride in her memory. #Elizainspired
The Empire Dragon Boat Team is New York CIty's only all cancer dragon boat team. Founded ten years ago by Donna Wilson RN, Empire paddles in Flushing Bay Queens and participates in races all along the eastern seaboard. in July 2018 we will be participating in the International Brreast Cancer Dragon Boat Festival in Florence Italy. In addition to raising awareness for cancer treatment and the benefits of exercise, Empire is a leading grassroots advocate for water issues in the New York City area.
Will you help us surpass our fundraising goal?
Rare cancer research is underfunded, but we can change that. While we can’t all be doctors or researchers, we can raise the money that makes their lifesaving work possible. Cycle for Survival supporters have funded over one hundred clinical trials and studies, leading to new discoveries that are helping patients today.
But there is still more work to be done.
100% of every dollar you give funds pioneering research led by Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center within six months of the events.
About 50% of all people diagnosed with cancer are battling a rare cancer. Too many people are touched by this disease, and yet many with rare cancers don’t have a proven, if any, treatment plan—that’s unacceptable.
Help us: Join our team or make a donation today. Your efforts will fight cancer and make a real impact.
Thank you in advance for your support! Together, we can bring new and better treatments to patients worldwide.
