SNCC Hope Floats is a Breast Cancer Survivor Dragon Boat crew
Why Dragon Boating for Breast Cancer Survivors?
Wellness, Fitness, Camaraderie, Fun and Support
Post-treatment, breast cancer survivors may experience some limitiations to their prior level of physical ability. This can be improved by dragon boat paddling. Attending 1 to 2 practices per week can help to regain strength, improve fitness levels and provide a great support group with those who have taken a similar cancer journey.
Dragon boating is an upper body activity that is non-weight bearing, therefore associated with less injury. It is shown to improve range of motion with a carry over into daily life. As well, the risk of lymphedema can be lowered.
South Niagara Canoe Club dragon boat crews are one big happy dragon boating family.
SNCC Hope Floats is a Breast Cancer Survivor Dragon Boat crew made up of members from South Niagara Canoe Club. Sally Rennick is their coach. SNCC Hope Floats' main focuses are participating in Breast Cancer Survivor festivals such as the IBCPC festival that is held once every four years, support of one another, improving/maintaining fitness, developing paddling skills, and camaraderie.
