There is no better organization for breast cancer survivors than Paddle for the Cure NYC . Their water-sport program offers a new and refreshing lifestyle for survivors by rebuilding strength and body-positivity. This community is truly deserving of all support and after meeting their passionate and dedicated leader, Leah Salmorin, you’ll want to grab a paddle and jump onboard!

Paddle for the Cure is visionary! Leah Salmorin is a great leader. The experience of paddling is great for body and soul. All cancer survivors should have this opportunity. We, of Moving For Life Dance Exercise for Cancer Recovery are thrilled to partner with this wonderful group.
Dr. Martha Eddy
Paddle for the Cure is a personal mission Leah runs with her whole heart. She used her experience with cancer as a catalyst to found a nonprofit organization that aids those on their cancer journey. Her passion to be an advocate for those who are battling is inspirational and I’m proud to know Leah and see how far Paddle for the Cure has come.
