Choose Positive Living with Sara Troy and her guest Bryce Butkiewicz, on air from July 10th
Fairway Gorge Paddling Club is excited to introduce a dragon boat team specifically dedicated to cancer survivors and supporters. All of us likely know of someone who either has or has had, a form of cancer.
Dragon boating offers engaging physical exercise, the incredible support of the paddling community, and the involvement in something bigger than the disease, all of which dramatically improve the quality of life for everyone involved. Practices began on July 2nd, and will run twice a week until the Victoria Dragon Boat Festival (Aug 1012). New paddlers are welcome and encouraged to contact the Fairway Gorge Paddling Club at 7784323472 with questions. We look forward to seeing you out on the water!
