Paddle For Recovery

Meet Casi Rynkowski, she's a BIC SUP Ambassador and she is the owner of Casi Rynkowski Performance Training and Outdoor Fitness. This summer she is hosting an event—FREE paddling series this summer called Paddle for Recovery. It is a free SUP class for recovering cancer survivors. The classes will be running throughout the New England area. Her goal is to introduce SUP to cancer survivors so they can use paddling and being outdoors as part of their recovery, because Mother Nature does help heal!

It's no secret that Mother Nature can help heal. Just step outside after a stressful day and you immediately start to feel relief. Add in movement or exercise and the benefits grow. New studies have shown that outdoor activity can aid in recovery from disease, reduce stress, increase concentration, and improve your overall health and wellbeing. If you can enjoy these benefits while burning calories and building muscle, then that is what the doctor ordered.

So for the sake of repeating the obvious—Paddle for Recovery is a totally free SUP class for recovering cancer patients and their ever-so-important caretakers. Her mission with this program is to provide an opportunity to escape on the water and maybe even find a new passion that can assist in recovery. There are no gimmicks - it’s just FREE. All equipment and instruction is provided.

Registration is required. There are ten spots available and it's first come first served. The meet up location is Kingman Marina in Catalmut, MA but it could change depending on the wind and weather. Please contact Casi for more information or to register.

This program is absolutely FREE. She has decided to donate her time and resources because she has way too many friends battling this disease and wanted to make an immediate impact on their lives. Her ultimate goal is for Paddle for Recovery to spread, have more businesses jump on board and have existing hosting businesses keep the program alive and run it on their own. The great outdoors has not only been her home for cross training but my her go to for personal healing both mentally and physically.

BIC SUP has donated boards, a truck and additional gear for these event. Dana - Farber and Boston Cancer Support are helping to spread the word. Registration is required. Limited spots available.
