- Regatta Name: Poughkeepsie Row for the Cure
- Date of Event: Sunday, May 31, 2020 – Canceled due to COVID-19
- Venue (Body of Water): Hudson River
- Host Club: Hudson River Rowing Association
On Sunday, May 31, 2020, the Hudson River Rowing Association will be hosting the 13th annual Row for the Cure® Regatta. This regatta will raise money for Susan G. Komen Greater NYC ®. Komen Greater NYC uses these funds to provide breast health education, screening, treatment, and support services to underserved women and to provide funding for peer-reviewed national research programs. Seventy-five percent of net money raised goes to Local Community Health Grants, while twenty-five percent of the funds raised are used for National Research. The Row for the Cure® was originally established in 1993 by Kathy Frederick and Station L Rowing Club to support the Oregon and SW Washington Affiliate of the Susan G. Komen for the Cure Foundation in the search to find the cures for Breast Cancer.
Wappingers Crew Club (WCC) hosted the Row for the Cure in Poughkeepsie for twelve years, from 2008 through 2019. The idea to host a Row for the Cure was made by Wappingers Crew Club high school students. Student athletes organized the regatta along with the support of their parents, Hudson River Rowing Association, and the crew clubs of Hudson Valley Rowing League. This first regatta raised almost $4,500. Today the Poughkeepsie Row for the Cure® has raised over $113,000 for Komen Greater NYC®. In 2015, as a result of all of the efforts of those involved in organizing the regatta, including Wappingers Crew Club, Hudson Valley Rowing League, Hudson River Rowing Association and all of the other crew teams that help out and participate in the regatta, Miles of Hope Breast Cancer Foundation, which serves New York’s Hudson Valley, has received grants from the Susan G. Komen Greater NYC®.
Registration opens Sunday, April 26, 2020!
The regatta has events for High School teams and Masters. The regatta includes sculling events, in addition to crew.
IBM employees may donate to the Poughkeepsie Row for the Cure when making their IBM Employee Charitable Contribution Campaign (ECCC) pledges by selecting agency code: 0V554.
