Get Involved


Organizing local events that improve the health and safety of fishermen and their families is something we work on all year long. These events can sometimes come together quickly, so please check back often to see what’s happening near you.

Cape Cod Women's Wellness Circle

  • Location: Pilgrim's Landing, 880 Main Street (at Munson Meeting Way), Chatham, MA
  • Date: March 28, 2017

Women from Cape Cod fishing families are invited to gather on the last Tuesday of every month for conversations that inspire & support personal wellness, healing, and growth, and help strengthen the overall health of their families amidst the stressful and uniquely unpredictable culture of fishing.

Each month’s conversation will explore a different theme, such as “Balance & Healing” or “Grief & Loss,” using experiential tools such as guided meditation, gentle movement, journaling, and more.
