2016 RACE TEAM NOTES:  At the DC Festival, on rainy May 21st, our dedicated BCS team came in 2nd in the Breast Cancer Survivor race against DC Pink and 4th in the all Women's final heat. GO TEAM!  At the Baltimore Challenge on June 25th the race team maintained great timing and positive attitudes during the first 500 meter race for several members! On July 9th, the team participated in the inaugural Atlantic City 200 meter race where time trials placed the team in the festival's A-division, placing 4th in the final heat by only 1 second! Now THAT was a race!! The 500 meter Women's Race in Richmond resulted in a Bronze Medal!

OTHER:  Local artist, Nancy Hammond, has painted her rendition of "The Paddles of the Dragon" which is currently displayed in the breast center of Anne Arundel Medical Center.  That same painting is available for purchase on notecards and on a rolled print.  SEE MERCHANDISE PAGE FOR ONLINE PURCHASES.
