Hey friends! I'm going to be running the Girlfriends Run for a Cure 5K in Vancouver, WA on 8/18 as a fundraiser for Pink Phoenix. In June of 2016, I was diagnosed with breast cancer. Only two years later, I'm doing a 5K! It's because of the support of my dragon boat team!
Pink Phoenix™ is the United States' first dragon boat team comprised solely of breast cancer survivors. Our mission: empowering breast cancer survivors through the sport of dragon boating. Our purpose is to demonstrate the quality of life breast cancer survivors can have; to promote wellness, fitness, fun and camaraderie through dragon boating; and to provide social, emotional and spiritual support for breast cancer survivors. Pink Phoenix™ strives to provide hope to those newly diagnosed and to serve as a reminder to women to have mammograms regularly and to do self-exams. Early detection is important and recent research indicates that exercise can also keep cancer from recurring.
Please consider making a contribution to this fantastic group of fighters and survivors. We are a small non-profit that supports women who are diagnosed and either have had treatment or are currently in treatment. We ask for your support to keep us "afloat" and paddling strong.
