Dragon Boat Racing
Rotarian Senator Maria Byrne cuts the ribbon to officially launch the Shannon Dragons new dragon boat at Castleconnell, Limerick on August 2th.
Dragonboating is an international venture proven to improve fitness and rehabilitation after breast cancer surgery. Evidence has shown that exercise after breast cancer is not only safe, but beneficial. The specific movement of paddling can play an important part in preventing and/or improving lymphoedema, a chronic swelling of tissues that can occur due to surgery. Apart from the obvious physical benefits, it is also hugely beneficial for mental health and well-being, plus boosting energy levels and promoting better sleep.
