Row for the Cure #PinktheBoathouse Challenge 2020

Row for the Cure #PinktheBoathouse Challenge 2020

#PinktheBoathouse Challenge Oct. 1-31, 2020

Join us for the inaugural Row for the Cure #PinktheBoathouse Challenge during the month of October in honor or memory of a friend or loved one. Challenge yourself, your friends, your teammates, your rivals. Help change lives.

Breast cancer hasn’t stop because of COVID-19 and neither have we.

Row/Erg or Run/Walk during October - Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Form or join a team with friends, family, teammates and participate virtually to raise funds for local Komen affiliates and community cancer organizations supporting local breast health programs and cutting-edge research to find cures.

Open to everyone, this new virtual event allows people who previously couldn’t attend an in-person Row for the Cure event to participate, in addition to those who competed over the past 27 years. We can still celebrate virtually, share moments of respect and honor remotely, and fundraise online in support of all those dealing with breast cancer's impact on their lives. 

Support the Fight!

Row for the Cure events have served two important purposes for 27 years while raising over $3 million. They are both critical fundraisers that contribute significant funds to fuel Komen’s breast cancer research and patient support efforts, and they provide all those touched by breast cancer a way to show their support, meet people who are going through similar experiences, and feel a sense of being a part of a large compassionate community that is making a difference in the fight against breast cancer.

Row for the Cure will work with local Komen affiliates and breast health organizations across the U.S. to distribute funds generated by the #PinktheBoathouse Challenge. 

At at time when many of us are feeling powerless due to COVID, let's meet the challenge head on and really help make a difference in the year 2020.
