WOW! is not only an acronym for Women On Water!, it also describes the people involved, the programs it supports and the mentorship it provides. On Thursday, July 21, 2011 organizers are holding a silent auction and BBQ to raise funds and awareness for WOW! a program that promotes the health and wellness of women in Nova Scotia through the sport of sailing.
Jacqueline Gahagan, professor and chair in the Health Promotion Department at Dalhousie University and WOW!’s founding chairperson, says WOW! is committed to promoting the health of women through sailing mentoring and education. To learn more, read the DalNews story, and visit the WOW website.
