2017 – WHAT A YEAR!!!!!!!!!!!!

Dear friends of Row for the Cure,

As I look back on this last year I am humbled and amazed at our successes across the country.  Your participation, support and donations have made a huge difference in the lives of women and men in many communities across this country and brought us closer to finding cures for breast cancer.

Thanks to all of you, as of the end of 2017, Row for the Cure topped $2.5 million in funds raised for education, free mammograms, patient/family support and the search for cures.  Seattle broke all the previous records and led the way with their campaign to “Put the Damper on Breast Cancer”: DAMPER – Donating A Mammogram Per Every Rower.


We welcomed a new event in Princeton NJ with the Mercer Indoor Row for the Cure and look forward to welcoming more events in your community in 2018.

2017 Year End LetterRow for the Cure is proud to say that all of our events are hosted by volunteers AND our National Board is all volunteer.  I invite you to watch this video and then read what I have to say next.


We join our partner Susan G. Komen with a special focus on the breast cancer that kills; metastatic breast cancer.  You can be More than Pink too!  Let us help you host or participate in a Row for the Cure event and the money you raise is magnified – It’s great fun and changes lives. For info, contact president@rowforthecure.com

When you donate directly to Row for the Cure you will help us make our goal for 2018/2019: to double the # of #rowforthecure events and double our commitment to Defeat Breast Cancer. We are a 501c3 non-profit.   The funds we raise are tax deductible.             

Please donate, volunteer, or participate.

We are truly One race away from victory!  One stroke closer to the cures!

I wish you all a peaceful and healthy 2018.

Kathy Frederick


Founder and President
