A really early start! All smiles no matter what.
June and Mags provided a great representation supporting the changed definition to include people affected by Breast Cancer hereditary genes. A heartfelt effort!! However, the amendment was not approved. We'll keep trying...
The welcome is warm, humid & very, very pink!!!
What have Paddlers for Life been doing in Sarasota?
Paddlers for Life UK team.
An inclusive team of breast cancer survivor dragon boat paddlers are off to Sarasota to participate in an International Participatory Dragon Boat Festival. Paddling as a Paddlers for Life UK team there are members from Paddlers for Life Manchester, Paddlers for Life Windermere and Worcester Busters. They will be paddling in races against dozens of teams from across the world over two days as well as enjoying many other activities including a celebratory parade. It will be a chance to meet thousands of other breast cancer survivors and share a wonderful experience.
Cancer survivors and supporters from these teams who are staying in the UK will be sending them our encouragement, best wishes and good vibes. We will also be watching out for news of their exciting experience.
