On Sunday, June 5, 2016, the Wappingers Crew Club will be hosting their 9th annual Row for the Cure® Regatta. This regatta will raise money for Susan G. Komen Greater NYC ®.

The Row for the Cure® was originally established in 1993 by Kathy Frederick and Station L

Wappingers Crew Club (WCC) has hosted a Row for the Cure since June 1, 2008. The idea to host a Row for the Cure was made by Wappingers Crew Club high school. Student athletes organized the regatta along with the support of their parents, HRRA, and the other local crew clubs. This first regatta raised almost $4,500. Today the Poughkeepsie Row for the Cure® has raised over $72,000 for Komen Greater NYC®. In 2015, as a result of all of the efforts of those involved in organizing the regatta, including Wappingers Crew Club, Hudson River Rowing Association and all of the other crew teams that help out and participate in the regatta, Miles of Hope Breast Cancer Foundation, which serves New York’s Hudson Valley, has received a grant from the Susan G. Komen Greater NYC®.

Registration opens May 11th.

The regatta has events for High School teams and Masters. The regatta includes sculling events, in addition to crew. For information on available events, or to register for the regatta, please visit Regatta Central.
