Pittsburgh Hearts of Steel
Empowering Breast Cancer Survivors to strengthen the mind, body, and spirit
through camaraderie and the sport of Dragon Boat Paddling.
About Pittsburgh Hearts of Steel
Pittsburgh Hearts of Steel is a support group open to all Breast Cancer Survivors. We want to provide a place where Breast Cancer Survivors of all ages and physical abilities can gather to discuss and act to improve their overall sense of well-being. We do this through physical activity, communication, support, friendship, and giving back to our community. Although the physical benefits of dragon boat paddling are an important part of our organization, we all find the support, social and additional activities of the group just as fulfilling. We embrace all members no matter what activities you choose to participate in and encourage suggestions from all members.
Win A Kayak!
Summer 2020……. Americans headed outdoors to get their exercise. But people who thought they’d give kayaking or canoeing a try last season quickly learned that everyone else seemed to have the same idea, making it hard to buy a boat. Paddling stores even sold their demo and rental stock in an attempt to keep up with demand.

Support Breast Cancer Awareness!
Hearts of Steel Pittsburgh is a non-profit organization and 100% of all donations are used solely for the activities, education and needs of Breast Cancer survivors. We want to give back to our communities in the Pittsburgh and surrounding areas and are willing to share our personal experiences and knowledge about Breast Cancer and survivorship.
