It is 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. Paddle for Recovery is a FREE paddleboard class for recovering cancer survivors and a friend or family member who supported them through their treatment.
Our mission with this program is to provide an opportunity for survivors to escape on the water from the physical and mental
stressors from this terrible disease, and maybe even find a new passion that can assist in recover. There are no gimmicks, it's just free for anyone who has completed cancer treatment. All equipment and instruction will be provided.
