What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Paddling

Science proved, more than 30 years ago, that paddling in a dragon boat was beneficial to the rehabilitation and health of breast cancer patients. Further, continued participation in dragon boating helped to prevent recurrence. Since then, science shows that populations with all types of cancer benefit from dragon boating for continued health and fewer incidents of recurrence.
