Recently Team CHOA competed in the Dragon Boat Races here in Charleston.

Dragon Boat Charleston’s mission is Promoting Physical & Mental Wellness among Cancer Survivors and their Community through Dragon Boating. Their Goal is to redefine Cancer Survivorship. Mental and physical wellness is a big part of a cancer survivor’s journey.  It has been going on since 2003 and has had great success. Team CHOA participates each year with a team. This year we won our division!!!

You can be a “newbie” or an experienced Paddler, Cancer Survivor, family, or friend. If you would like to be involved or be a part of our team next year please let us know!

There is also a new program to Dragon Boat Charleston called MOVE IT. MOVE-IT is a physician Referred Health and Wellness Program that has group fitness classes that pair seated strength, to balance, and flexibility with intermittent periods of walking. The classes are 45-60 minutes and participants are encouraged to attend twice a week. Please let Ashley Johnson, Patient Wellness Navigator, know if you would like to be referred to this program!
