Dragon Boat Festivals & Team events

Heart and Soul hosts fundraisers and participates in local events throughout the year that helps to support our mission of promoting cancer awareness and giving back to our community here in Brevard County. ​

Dragon Boat Festivals and Races

Dragon boat festivals, races, and training camps are held throughout the country and around the world including many right here in the state of Florida.  The festivals and races include breast cancer survivor teams, supporter teams, club teams and community teams.  Most participate for the thrill of the competition and some just for the fun and camaraderie of racing. The length of the races varies from 200 meters to 500 meters, sometimes including a 1000 or 2000 meter.

In addition to festivals and races, there are several dragon boat training camps held around the state. We are fortunate to host the Space Coast Dragon Boat Camp at our local venue out of Oars and Paddles Park every year for three weeks in April.
