Fulfilling our mission is only possible due to the dedication of Seattle’s rowing community. We are thankful for their support in volunteering, racing, and fundraising – year after year.

Leaving breast cancer in our wake

Rowers are the perfect bunch to support our community as we battle to win the fight against breast cancer.

Known for their drive, their tenacity, their passion, and their love of the sport, rowers are competitive and challenge themselves every day, balancing the desire to perfect their technique with the need to just go faster. Ultimately, that is why we come together each year. As competitors and as a rowing community, we are leaving breast cancer in our wake!

As a Rowing Cares event, our heart is in caring for those in our backyard. We are dedicated to supporting our local community and are proud to be a supporter of numerous local foundations focused on early detection and support resources after a diagnosis.

2024 marks our 25th year since our first event, and to date, more than $1.3 MILLION has been raised and kept local to benefit those here in the Pacific Northwest.

We are celebrating 25 years of making a difference in our community. Yes, we have had a canceled event due to Weather and of course, COVID, but our hearts have been in this fight since 1999!!

Looking forward to this being our BEST year yet!

JOIN US ON SEPTEMBER 22,2024!!

Fundraise

Each September, rowers from far and near begin their online campaigns with the goal to support crucial initiatives for breast cancer patients in our community.

Join the competition and help support our mission and win a coveted Pink Erg!
