Row for the Cure Poughkeepsie Recap


Team Miles of Hope

Junior and masters crews from NY and CT gathered for the 13th annual Row for the Cure Poughkeepsie on June 5. Hosted by Hudson River Rowing Association, the day was filled with sunshine, good water, great costumes and lots of fun!

A highlight of the event was seeing many cancer survivors rowing. For several, this was their first race and they came across the finish line to the delighted cheers of all teams. These moments inspired us all

Proceeds from the regatta benefit the Miles of Hope Breast Cancer Foundation, which directly supports more than 700 breast cancer patients a year in the Hudson Valley Region. Row for the Cure also partners with Susan G. Komen and supports their efforts to find a cure through cutting-edge research.

Thank you to Hudson River Rowing Association and all the participants and supporters for making a difference in the lives of those impacted by cancer.
