In the Pink sponsors dragon boat paddling for survivors and their families, as well as non-survivors.  If you are interested in learning to paddle, join the Jacksonville Dragon Boat Club!  We have teams for everyone, regardless of age or fitness level.  We also have one team, the Mammoglams, that is made up of all breast cancer survivors!  This is a great way to have fun and exercise with other women who understand your journey. For all people interested in any team, call Marty Millard at 904-536-3475 or for more information, visit www.jacksonvilledragonboatclub.com.  Stop by the new Jacksonville Dragon Boat Training Center at Beach Marine to see the new facility.  It is in the building just east of Nipper’s Grille.  Get bit by the dragon!
