JOIN THE BATTLE. Beat Rare Cancers.

Welcome to Empire Dragons NYC Cycle for Survival page!

Four years ago, our teammate, Eliza Adams, led the Empire Dragons in our first Cycle for Survival fundraising ride.  Eliza lost her battle with breast cancer in 2017, but she continues to serve as a great inspiration for us all.  We are New York City's first breast cancer dragon boat team and we compete in dragon boat races up and down the east coast.  This past summer, we participated in an International Dragon Boat Team festival in Florence Italy.   And we came in 6th overall out of 129 boats!  Please help us to raise money to support cancer research and eradicate rare cancers!  We are #Elizainspired.

 We are riding and raising money for Cycle for Survival, the movement to beat rare cancers. Will you help us surpass our fundraising goal?

Why this matters to us:

50% of People with Cancer Have a Rare Cancer
When combined, about half of all patients fighting cancer are fighting a rare cancer. These are cancers we know — such as leukemia, lymphoma, thyroid, ovarian, brain, pancreatic, and all pediatric cancers — yet research is largely underfunded.

100% Goes to Lifesaving Research Led by MSK
Every dollar you give will advance innovative studies and clinical trials led by Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSK). Discoveries made by MSK revolutionize how cancer is diagnosed and treated, helping patients across the country and around the world.

6 Months for Fast Impact
Not only does every dollar go to research, your gift will be in the hands of doctors and researchers within six months of the events. As a donor, you will learn about the projects supported and the breakthroughs made.

Join our team or make a donation today. Your efforts will fight cancer and make a real impact for people who have few, if any, treatment options.

Thank you in advance for your support!
