8th Annual St. Pat’s Sprint for Recovery!

Join us on March 16, when the City of Chicago will be out in full force to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. We’ll be leading teams of eight for the traditional row on Chicago’s green river, and this year we are excited to host an indoor Power Hour, too. Registration is now live, and seats are filling up fast!

What’s the Power Hour?

Glad you asked! The Power Hour is a relay-style erging event in which teams of four row as many meters as possible in 60 minutes. To motivate you along the way, we’ll have a lively crew of bagpipers, we’ll be streaming live footage from the green river, and we’ll have a St. Pat’s trophy ready to go for the winning team.

I’m not into rowing. What else could i do?

We always need volunteers, and each of our rowers is fundraising to support Recovery on Water’s free programming for patients and survivors of breast cancer. Volunteers for the St. Pat’s Sprint will be gifted free swag and will also be invited to join us for a free beer and appetizers at the after party.

And of course our donors are critical participants. Those who contribute to individual or team fundraisers will join a diverse and generous community of givers who make it possible for ROW to serve a growing roster of members with athletic training, wellness workshops, outreach initiatives, and ongoing daily support for a life changed by a breast cancer diagnosis.

Sounds great! How do I sign up?
