Why choose dragon boating as a venue for survivors?
Research has shown that breast cancer survivors who engage in repetitive activities, such as paddling, develop a marked improvement in both physical and mental health.
Armed with positive effects of dragon boating, a group of enthusiastic breast cancer survivors from Rochester began to get organized and paddled every Wednesday evening in the summer on Silver Lake.
The team continues to meet in the winter months working on stretching and strength training.
