The Healing Dragons of Charlotte has helped and supported us in starting a team in Morganton, NC. A group of three women who have gone through Breast Cancer thought this would be a great opportunity to bring this fastest growing water sport in the USA to Morganton. Between the three of us we have participated in numerous fundraising events for Cancer Research. Some of which include, Windsor, Canada; Lake Lure, NC; Charlotte,NC; Atlanta, GA; Charleston, SC; Anderson, SC., Johnson City, TN., Richmond, VA., Orlando, FL., and Chattanooga, TN.
