Paddle for Recovery August 1st

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.

Paddle for Recovery is a totally free SUP class for recovering cancer patients and their ever-so-important caretakers. Our 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.

Sign up is required as there are ten spots available. Meet up location is at the Stockbridge Bowl. Instructors Tracy Remelius and Casi Rynkowski
