January 2014

Happy New Year to all!  We are very excited at In the Pink about the new year and look forward to expanding our services.

FREE YOGA will continue on Wednesday evenings at 5:30pm and Saturday mornings at 10am at our beach location.  Please RSVP each week as a courtesy to our instructors.  Some of them live far from In the Pink and call in before driving in for their class.  Remember, these classes are FREE to all CANCER patients.  Our yoga is very gentle and can even be provided from the sofa or chair within the yoga room.  Experience is not necessary.  Learning to stretch and breathe are our goals, so that cancer patients can help ease some of their pain or emotional challenges during treatment.  For more information, contact Sallie at sallie@jaxinthepink.net or call 372-0029.

DRAGON BOATING will also continue throughout 2014.  We have teams for everyone ages 14+.  All teams practice together except when we are preparing for a festival.  Practice takes place at 5:45 pm on Monday and Wednesday and 9am on Saturday mornings.  We meet at Beach Marine, directly behind Billy’s Boathouse Grille.  Our breast cancer team is called the Mammoglams.  The other teams are the Saltwater Slayers.  Our teams are also hosting the second annual Jacksonville Dragon Boat Festival at the Jacksonville Landing on September 20, 2014!  Join us and give paddling a try.  We are always glad to see new faces and watch the excitement when people get bit by the dragon!  For more information, contact Marty Millard (one of our coaches) at millardm@comcast.net.  For information on the festival, visit www.jacksonvilledragonboatfestival.com.
