Row for the Cure. One race away from a victory. One stroke closer to the cures.
Starting at noon in Washington DC on the Potomac, dedicated coxswains and rowers will be rowing for a cure. The regatta is hosted by TBC Racing and donations can be made online, http://www.dcrowforthecure.com with 75% of proceeds supporting local Susan G. Komen programs for early detection and 25% supporting research. Row for the Cure was established in 1993 in Portland with many venues like Washington DC (established in 1999) raising funds.
Other regattas today include the Minnesota Sprints on Lake Nokomis, Carnegie Lake Regatta, and the Virginia Boat Club Sprints Master Regatta on the James River all starting at noon. The crowd pleasing Henley Women’s Regatta continues throughout the weekend in the UK with over 1500 international competitors. And of course the World Rowing Cup in Varese, Italy. Catch the Cooper was cancelled due to lack of participation.
Make it a good day and row strong!
