Two years ago, a fabulous new rowing team - the Hydrow Shorties - joined the Pink the Boathouse Challenge and quickly became a top fundraising team. Now, this dynamic national group is stepping up again, hosting their own virtual erg event throughout August - Row 5K Oar Bust! and they invite everyone to join the challenge. 

"We work out on the Hydrow erg and use its interactive, social media capabilities to encourage and support one another - holding competitions, building a community, and, most importantly to our story, fundraise for causes we are passionate about,” said Erin Naber, team captain for the Shorties. "In our group, we have survivors, ladies currently undergoing treatment, and all of us have friends, family members, and/or coworkers who have fought or are fighting breast cancer. We are excited to launch this new Row for the Cure event and support those who need our help.“

Komen, that will lead to new, more effective treatment, ultimately reducing cancer related deaths and finding a cure.
