About Us


Our Outreach Program is funded from our annual Dragon Boat Race Day, a family fun event held each June.

Our Story

DragonBoat Beaufort was formed in 2012 by a group of cancer survivors who were inspired by the documentary “Awaken the Dragon” which was shown at the 2012 Beaufort International Film Festival.

DragonBoat Beaufort (DBB) is an all-volunteer non-profit organization dedicated to assisting cancer patients who live, work, or receive treatment in Beaufort County. We are a fund of the Community Foundation of the Lowcountry, a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation. Donations are tax-deductible as allowed by law.

You can become a member of DragonBoat Beaufort and enjoy the camaraderie of others who are also passionate about supporting those in our community who are living with cancer.

Full Membership includes paddling and the opportunity to join teams.

Social Membership is for those who don’t wish to paddle by want to be involved otherwise.

All DBB members support the mission of DragonBoat Beaufort by volunteering on our working committees which include our Outreach Program, Race Day planning, Social Events, and generally promoting the organization to others who may be interested in joining or who are in need of our services.
