Welcome to Row for the Cure®
We are pleased to introduce you to this series of regattas dedicated to making life better for women with breast cancer. Our website demonstrates our commitment to you as a resource for rowers, paddlers and friends who wish to make a contribution to the search for cures for breast cancers. Many rowers and paddlers are so dedicated to their sport, that when Breast Cancer touches their lives, the network of friends in the water community is a natural resource for making a difference. Now all water sport participants have a ready-made avenue to make that happen.
We are proud to be a national supporter of Susan G. Komen®. The money we raise in each community supports local education, free screenings, follow-up treatments and many kinds of family support as well as well as direct funding for cutting edge research.
For everyone involved with our mission – it’s personal. Volunteers, sponsors, donors, and participants across the country have all been touched in some way by this deadly disease. For me it is very personal. My mom was recently diagnosed and treated and we now count her as a survivor along with others in my family.
Every stroke we row, every dollar we donate, every program in which we participate – is another life saved.
We can and will win this battle together. We’re on a mission – Join Us!
