The Ithaca Dragon Boat Team is recruiting for an All Cancer Survivors Team of 10 people ahead of the Ithaca Dragon Boat Festival race July 13, 2019, at Taughannock Fall State Park.

No experience is necessary and equipment is included.

Repetitive upper body exercise has been shown to help prevent lymphedema in breast cancer survivors and build upper body strength.  Dragon Boating combines upper body exercise with team building to improve overall physical and mental health and offering Cancer Survivor Paddlers to develop friendships and camaraderie through their support for each other.   

There is nothing more exhilarating than feeling the boat fly through the water. Come hear what it’s all about!

Join us on January 31, 5 to 7 p.m. at the Cancer Resource Center, 612 W State St., Ithaca. Refreshments will be served. Meet Dragon Boat Club member Paula, a breast cancer survivor since 2009. Paula is looking for 9-plus paddlers to join her for a wet, wild and wonderful summer adventure!
