The S.W.I.M. Spotlight…

Who’s in the March S.W.I.M. SPOTLIGHT?

The NYC Empire Dragon Boat Team!

Women of the Empire Dragon Boat Team participate in the Oyster Project!

The women of the Empire Dragon Boat Team are an extraordinary group of cancer survivors, who have been plowing through NYC waterways and promoting active lifestyles since 2009.

They are in our S.W.I.M.spotlight for their recent participation in the Oyster Project; an effort initiated by the NY/NJ Baykeeper organization to rebuild NYC’s oyster reefs. To date, they have introduced 500 cheapest propecia uk baby oysters to the Flushing Bay which will help sequester harmful toxins out of our waterways and enhance the overall health of the tidal ecosystem.

Not only is the Empire Dragon Boat Team committed to this important effort, they deserve the spotlight for being a remarkable cialis 20 mg support system that gives women who are recovering from cancer, an important physical outlet. In the literal sense, the Empire Dragon Boat Team helps women strength the muscles that are too often compromised by lumpectomies. And in many ways, rowing helps to strengthen the spirit of these women and enable them to continue the fight against cancer, one “stroke” at a time.

 Cheers to the Empire Dragon Boat Team who are in the S.W.I.M. spotlight for their inspiration and efforts towards bioremediation of the bay!
