USRowing Celebrating Row for the Cure
8 Oct, 2019
As a part of Row for the Cure’s 26th anniversary of campaigning to end breast cancer, all athletes, coaches and supporters are being asked to participate in Pink the Boathouse. Supported by Pocock Racing, Pocock Foundation, Regatta Central, Rowing Blazers, Scull and Sweep, JLRacing and USRowing, anyone can get involved in the efforts by wearing pink to any race or Saturday practice through the month of October.
Additionally, across the nation, organizations are hosting Pink the Boathouse events on October 5 (or wherever one fits in their schedules).
As stated on the Row for the Cure website, “the month-long initiative, which will include tributes to survivors, honoring those lost to breast cancer and recognition of caregivers, is designed to demonstrate the rowing community’s continued support of breast cancer survivors and those still battling and the ongoing effort to end breast cancer. It’s a very simple concept — get your pink on and share stories.”
Get involved on social media and tag #pinktheboathouse!
