The Story

Pathways, a program of The Connection for Women and Families, sponsorsTeam SOS NJ, which is one of only 3 teams in NJ that for are exclusively for cancer survivors.We practice locally at Lake Parsippany, and this year our team, comprised of 30 survivors, paddled in 5 races up and down the east coast.  

Our goal is to raise and additional $5,000 to finance a trip to the International Breast Cancer Dragon Boat Race and Festival in October 2014 in Sarasota, FL.  This international event takes place every 4 years.  Over 100 breast cancer survivor teams from all corners of the world paddle alongside one another, embracing life after cancer, in the most exhilarating and uplifting way possible.

Although it is both an ancient and contemporary competitive sport, Dragon Boating is a particularly beneficial exercise for women who have a history of breast cancer, since it helps participants to strengthen their core muscles, regain stamina and improve range of motion.   Engaging in this wonderful, supportive activity promotes a strong camaraderie and connection among paddlers. 

Please support our team's efforts to get to Sarasota by sending your tax deductible donation today.
