M.A.D is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization established under the Metro Asian Cultural Exchange(M.A.C.E). We were established in 1997 as one of the pioneers of dragon boat racing in the United States. Our paddlers have competed all across the world, domestically in cities such as New York, Boston, Washington D.C, Hartford, Tampa Bay, San Francisco, etc and internationally in Hong Kong, Toronto, Vancouver, Montreal, Rome, and Macau. In its second season, M.A.D had created its own junior program aimed at promoting awareness of Asian culture among high school students through the sport of dragon boat. Our members are taught the importance of trust, discipline, and teamwork.
