The Journey...
Gilda's Club New Hampshire is here to support you, your family and friends during your cancer journey.

Gilda's Club New Hampshire

Like other affiliates of the Cancer Support Community, Gilda’s Club New Hampshire will offer free programs and services for men, women, and children impacted by cancer. Our innovative program will be an essential complement to medical care, providing support groups, healthy living workshops, educational programs, and social activities, all free of charge. Our support groups and program will take place in the Lakes Region of New Hampshire.

Together we can open the club to empower our members and strengthen their hope.

Dragon Boat Festival

The Festival will have the painting of the dragon heads and practice on 9/23 then on 9/24 we’ll hold Dragon Boat racing, a flower ceremony for loved ones touched by cancer, and fun for anyone racing or watching!

Dragon Boating is easy to learn, extremely safe, and an activity where men and women compete side-by-side towards the same goal. Absolutely no experience is necessary to participate, and we provide the boats, paddles, life jackets, a time to practice, and the racecourse!

The Dragon Boat Festival benefits Gilda’s Club New Hampshire and our goal of opening a Clubhouse for men, women, teens, and children impacted by cancer.

UPDATE: We are pleased to announce that we are now members of the Eastern Region Dragon Boat Association (ERDBA). For 2022, we will have racing divisions for ACP and BCP teams.

Your support will allow Gilda’s Club to open and offer its support groups and services to individuals impacted by cancer, free of charge. Our evidence-based program will reduce feelings of loneliness, anxiety, and distress.
