Just Hep B and the Dragon Boat Regatta

On June 3rd, we participated in the Independence Dragon Boat Regatta on the Schuylkill River in Philadelphia.  Even though the day started out overcast, rainy, and overall gloomy, we were looking bright and sharp in our #justB t-shirts.  Our first race was a little rough as our team figured out the best paddling technique.  By the time our second race came around, the sun had broken through the clouds giving us the energy and encouragement we needed.  We paddled with all our might and ended up coming in 2nd, shaving off 10 seconds from our original time!  We also placed 2nd in our third and final race of the day, a great finish!  We are so proud of our team, and would like to say thank you to all the volunteers and participants who made it such a fun day!  Below is a recap video followed by a few of our favorite photos from the day:
