TSM Fitbit Group

Gail Bliss has started a TEAMSurvivor FitbIt group. The idea of the group is to help motivate each other to keep being active. The group is private so you have to be invited to join the group. The group will see only what you set for the group to see. What we see presently is the steps only of the groups 5 members. Steps for the last 7 calendar days are posted along with the number of active minutes. Send a request to Gail (gail3511@gmail.com) or myself (Susan Reed, greed@chorus.net)) and we will send you an invitation. Follow the instructions on the email, log into your dashboard and click on the “community” tab to see TEAMSurvivor Madison (WI). Click on that to see the members and their steps! We can set up challenges as added little incentives to stay active!

Our Paddling Season Has Started!

We practice every Wednesday evening out of Rutabaga Paddlesports. Be ready to start at 6pm.
We encourage any member, no matter how they judge their skill set, to participate in this program. The goals of this program are to build your strength through a team sport. We do practice with the intent of increasing our skills and for some, prepared for regional festivals. Keep in mind that we are all survivors and are winners, no matter how fast or slow our boat goes. There is a magic moment when we all work together in unison and move that big heavy boat through the water. For a number of us - that's one of the reasons we paddle.

A refresher on the Inclement Weather Protocol for paddling.
Check Rutabaga's weather hotline (608-310-3868) after 3pm and if it's cancelled by that time there will be a message.
If no message, then come - but it can still be cancelled if a thunderstorm is imminent when we gather and if that happens, then we'll have an early Red Robin :>)

Why Not Ask!

As an all volunteer, member-driven, and member-led organization, we look to you to help brainstorm or solve a current need. The best way to find out if you can help, is to ask. Current needs for the organization:

Trademark/copyright attorney. Do you know a lawyer with this area of expertise that is willing to assist pro bono or at a non-profit rate?

Business services for the TSM office. Do you know a local business/data/internet provider that may be willing to donate or offer reduced rate services? Does your employer offer something like this to non-profits? This would allow TSM to set-up business operations at our office.


If you have leads on any of the above, please email TEAMSurvivor with details. THANKS!
