Making Strides of Washington DC

GoPink!DC BCS Dragon Boat Team

GoPink!DC Background

GoPink!DC, under the National Capital Area Women's Paddling Association (NCAWPA), exists to improve the quality of life of breast cancer survivors by increasing mobility, fitness, and mental health through the pariticpation in the activity of dragon boat paddling. Formed in 2006 by two NIH scientists, and based along the Anacostia River, just east of Capitol Hill, we offer one of the best fitness programs available to women recovering from a diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer in the DC area!

 

Why We are Making Strides

2019 marks our 11th consecutive year participating in Making Strides of Breast Cancer. Why? Because we know for a fact that money raised by walks like this subsidized the research that saved our lives. We walk in gratitude because we are certain this walk will make a difference. We walk in hope that research can add many more years to the lives of our loved ones who have faced cancer once, or multiple times, and those now battling Stage IV cancer.


Why We Support the American Cancer Society

Saving lives from breast cancer starts one team, one walker, and one dollar at a time. We know that the American Cancer Society is the leader in the fight to end breast cancer. We know that supporting them will ensure that if you need someone to talk to anytime of the day or night, they’ll be there. If your friend is losing her hair from chemo, your mother needs a ride to treatment, or a loved one needs a place to stay when treatment is far from home, they will be there to help.

Join us and together we will walk for a world without breast cancer.

Welcome to our Team Page. We've formed a team because this cause is important to us. We want to help. And walking and raising money in our local American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer event is the best way we can do that. We all have different reasons for participating but we share a determination to help save lives from breast cancer.

There are so many ways that the money our team raises helps. It’s helping fund innovative research. It's providing free information for people dealing with the disease. It’s providing rides to treatment and places to stay for people who have to seek treatment far from home. In short, our money is helping save lives. Consider donating to our team and helping advance the cause.

How We Support the American Cancer Society

Of course we walk in the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer event. And we solicit donations from family, friends, and other supporters. But we also schedule fundraisers in lead-up to the big event. Bake-sales, car washes, and countless other types of events. And we promote those on social media, through Facebook and Twitter, by word of mouth, and through flyers at work and around the neighborhood. The success of fundraising events depends on two things - hard work and getting the word out. And we're out to do both. Keep an eye out for our fundraising events.

Join us. Donate today. Or walk with us.
