11 Jul Row for the Cure 2017
Row for the Cure is an event for all human powered watercrafts! If you have a kayak, paddle board, or another human powered craft, join us on October 14th to Row for the Cure!
The University of California, San Diego Women’s Crew began the San Diego Row for the Cure in 2001 after losing an alumna, Lori Ann Uptegrove, and a Triton family member, Joyce Snyder, to breast cancer over the summer of 2001.
Beginning with local teams and a few kayakers, this event has grown over the years and is OPEN TO ANY HUMAN-POWERED WATERCRAFT! Every stroke we row and every dollar we donate – is another life saved.
Participants grab their oars and paddles to row their way through a 4.5 kilometer course through Mission Bay, passing by the water side of Sea World, around Vacation Island and Paradise Point, finishing just North of Ski Beach.
– Races are both competitive and just for fun!
– Registration begins at 5:30 a.m. with events starting at 7 a.m.
– When registering, select Row for the Cure/San Diego
All entry fees and donations benefit Susan G. Komen San Diego to support free services for every step of the breast cancer journey, which includes free mammograms, educations, food assistance, transportation, temporary financial assistance for the most critical needs, diagnostics, research and more.
