Dragons paddle to beat cancer
CLARENCE Valley Dragons Abreast are looking for new members to take part in their twin aims of pursuing an active life and promoting awareness of breast cancer.
The organisation is a recreational dragon boat paddling team, not a sports team.
The parent organisation is Dragons Abreast Australia.
The Clarence Valley Dragons paddle out of beautiful Yamba Marina on Sunday mornings.
Publicity officer Roz Jones said paddling sessions have an emphasis on fun, fitness and friendship, with paddling at a gentle pace.
"Our race is not against each other, but against breast cancer," Ms Jones said.
"We promote breast cancer awareness in order to save lives by early detection."
Ms Jones said the Clarence Valley Dragons meet at Yamba Marina at 8.30am on Sunday mornings.
Paddling sessions are followed by morning tea and lively social interaction.
Membership is open to all breast cancer survivors and their families and friends.
All participants must be over 18 years.
If you have completed your treatment and are ready to start enjoying life, come and join us for a fun morning and meet new friends.
If you would like to know more, or would like to come along to try out dragon boat paddling, phone Cindy on 6646 3880 or Gill on 6642 5770.
