Hi! I'm Rob. I lost my cousin Shauna Headley, to breast cancer which increased my sensitivity to this cause. Having previously participated in Dragon Boat events in my past life in Philladelphia, I am pleased to get to captain Akron Rotary's first entree into this event here in Ohio! I have worked with this worthy cause over a three year period as a paddler and supporter and now I am hoping you can help me help The Dragon Dream Team. The Dragon Boat Team is one of more than 150 all breast cancer survivor dragon boat teams around the world and first in Ohio. Members of this unique support team are survivors of all ages and backgrounds, moving forward in a dragon boat and in life, paddling to a finish line where there is strength and confidence after breast cancer. The Dragon Dream Team has formed a community outreach program known as Boatloads of Hope. This is to raise awareness and support those currently going through breast cancer treatment. Boatloads of Hope delivers a beautiful silk pashmina scarf (embroidered with a dragon boat) along with a special message of hope and support. This gift represents hundreds of years of survivorship from a boatload of survivors demonstrating that there can be a great, active life after breast cancer.

  Akron Rotary was late to enter, so we have some catching up to do!  Once to the starting line, I am confident that our team will rock.  Please help us help others!
