Row for the Cure proudly announces the addition of Sarah Marshall to its strategic board of directors. Marshall brings to the foundation strategic communications experience which was obtained during time she spent in various postings including university athletic departments, numerous non-profit organizations, and USRowing.

“Sarah brings deep expertise in key areas to our Board of Directors and will be instrumental as we continue to move the organization forward,” said Row for the Cure President Beth Kohl. “ She brings tremendous passion for our mission of supporting the effort to find a cure for breast cancer and has an extensive understanding of the sport in addition to strong communications and fundraising skills. We are so fortunate to have her on our team.”

“It is an honor to serve the rowing community through the amazing efforts put forth through Row for the Cure,” said Marshall. “I truly believe the strongest and most beneficial aspect of rowing is the sense of family that one develops through the sport. If we can extend that support, love and strength to those facing their cancer diagnosis head on, I believe that is a job well done.”

Currently, Marshall is the Director of Marketing and Communications for The Quell Foundation, a nationally acclaimed mental health organization known for turning advocacy into statistical change, through its prestigious scholarship program and educational documentary series.

Prior to that, Marshall served as the Communications Manager for USRowing, the national governing body for the sport of rowing in the U.S., managing content and press coverage around domestic and international rowing events which included the 2016 Summer Olympic and Paralympic Games.

Marshall has also spent time in the athletic departments at Villanova University, Murray State University and The Ohio State University as a media relations assistant in sports information. Marshall received her degree in Strategic Communications in 2013 from The Ohio State University, where she was on the Women’s Rowing Team from 2011 to 2013. She lives in Philadelphia, Pa.
