THE EVENT
Represents our 3rd BCS Challenge. The success in our BCS Invitational events in 2010 and our 2014 Sarasota-prep motivated us to make this an annual event. Most of the members of our Team SOS NJ Dragon Boat team found a helpful hand at Pathways through their free Breast Cancer Survivor support services. This will represent an annual fundraiser event to support the organization that support others in dealing with life surviving cancer. Just as Coach Ellen created the Paddle for Pink event for Machestics to raise funds for their YWCA, we hope this event will allow the paddlers to return the support of Pathways with this event.
