You've heard of the battle against breast cancer -- but how about the paddle? One of the fastest-growing team sports is bringing survivors and supporters together: dragon boat racing. And at the International Dragon Boat Festival, Women Playing For T.I.M.E. was a roaring success.

    Beautifully told story. I first saw dragon boat races in Yueyang, China in 1995.  The beauty and power of these races reflects beautifully the beauty and power of breast cancer survivors. I have seen hundreds of video stories on the races and this may be the best one yet! Thanks to Growing Bolder and congratulations to the amazing women who power the boats and lift our spirits.

    What a beautiful way to tell our story to the community.  I can't wait to see our own pink dragon boat paddling across the different lakes in Central Florida in the future.  Our WOW team has made us very proud. As a partiicant on the Supporters of T.I.M.E. boat at the event, I was proud to be paddling under the WPFT name.  See you on the water!  Lynda
