Cancer survivors and their supporters are well known for sticking together and helping each other out.
That's exactly what you'll find with the Mid-Ohio Valley Dragon Boat Team.
The team practiced with the Akron Dream Team Saturday morning to prepare for a tournament in Cleveland later this month.
Both teams are made up completely of cancer survivors and supporters.
The two teams were competitive when racing each other, but teammates say there's a lot more to it than hurrying to the finish line.
"It's fun to do the paddling, it's fun to be on the river, we have a great group of men and women and it's just, it's great exercise," Lynne Sturtevant, a team member, said.
Members of both teams say practicing together helps prepare them for the real races they'll be entering.
