Row for a Cure and More

  The Pocock Rowing Center will host Seattle’s 16th annual Row for the Cure® offering a chance to row for a great cause to benefit the Puget Sound Affiliate of the Susan G. Komen© Row for the Cure. The 5.8 K race on Lake Union will start at 7:30 a.m. on Lake Washington Ship Canal near the SPU dock. The race will include kayaks, outrigger canoes, tribal canoes and dragon boats in addition to rowing shells. The top performing masters team/club and junior crew will each be awarded a pair of Croker pink sculling oars, individuals raising $250 will receive pink Headsweats race visors, individuals raising $50, sunglasses, and everyone registered receives a hot pink Croakies Eyewear Retainer.   

The goal is to raise 100k to support the George Pocock Rowing Foundation whose mission is to provide access and excellence in rowing as a means to foster physical activity, health, leadership and community engagement. All contributions are tax deductible and 75% of  donations stay in the Seattle community and 25% toward research in finding cures. National advocacy or administration will not be funded by this event. For more information or to donate see the website:
