Portland Row Turns 21


Portland, OR – Sunday, September 28th


Hosted by: Station L Rowing Club and Portland Boathouse


Benefit event for the Oregon and SW Washington Affiliate of  Susan G. Komen


Portland’s 21st Annual Row For the Cure® regatta offers rowers and paddlers their first Oregon head race for the fall season AND their chance to raise funds for breast cancer screening, support and research.  


Breast cancer survivors are encouraged to contact kathy.frederick@rowforthecure.com  for information about special survivor rowing and paddling teams.  The survivor rowing team will once again show off our special pink oars donated by last year’s sponsors.


Brunch for all participants (donated in partnership with Spin Catering) will be served during the awards ceremony following the regatta.  The awards ceremony will give special recognition to participants and teams for their fundraising efforts.


Your fundraising support is essential! From your contributions Komen carefully chooses local organizations to compensate for providing underserved women with breast cancer education, cancer screening and support during treatment.  Komen also directs your donations to ground-breaking research to find the cure.


Here’s how your dollars help:


  • $50-critical breast cancer prevention education
  • $150- free mammogram
  • $250- transportation/lodging for a woman to receive breast cancer treatment
  • $500-Komen’s Patient Assistance Program (basic support) for a low-income woman
  • $750-biopsy for a low-income, uninsured woman
  • $1,000-mobile mammogram coach for underserved women in remote areas


In the past 20 years Portland RFTC has directed more than $400,00 to the Oregon SW Washington  Affiliate of Komen for the Cure. 


Remember:  75% of your donations stay in our community and 25% go toward finding cures for breast cancer.   Not one penny goes to national advocacy or administration!
