By MARY ALICE CASEY , The Marietta Times

MARIETTA - Summoning a determination to not just survive in the face of a cancer diagnosis - but to thrive - can be a monumental task. The MOV'n Dragons team, which includes many thrivers among its members, is starting a new project designed to help. The Mid-Ohio Valley's dragon boat team has established a Thriver Fund to help those who have experienced cancer pursue exercise and other healthy lifestyle choices. Area fitness centers, gyms and businesses are partnering with the team to provide free classes, weight training and other services. Zumba, swimming, yoga, toning and massage are among the options available.
