2018 - WE DID IT!!
Since 2000, the PNW Rowing Community has raised $971,000 in support of Komen Puget Sound and the fight against breast cancer. We are so excited to announce that we exceeded our $125,000 fundraising goal for 2018 and have well exceeded $1,000,000 since we started RFTC in Seattle. For the past two years, our challenge to the rowing community has been to Donate A Mammogram Per Every Rower (D.A.M.P.E.R). Imagine 1,000 rowers raising enough for each to support a mammogram. That is 1,000 lives. Every one of us matter and can make a difference by meeting this challenge.
CLASSY FUNDRAISING ONLINE
Teams and individuals can fundraise together or independently for Row for the Cure. If you part of a rowing club and want to set up a page associated with your club, be sure and check that your club is set up. If your club is not set up, contact firstname.lastname@example.org and we can walk you through a team set up or watch the online Classy video on team and individual page set up. We challenge every rower to raise $150 to cover the cost of one mammogram. This is an achievable goal that will make an immediate impact in our community! Go to our Seattle Row for the Cure Classy page and start fundraising today!
Our Target- WE DID IT!
2018 Goal: $125,000
In 2017, we contributed $117,500 to Komen Puget Sound. In 2018, we set the goal of $125,000 and have exceeded it. Watch for updates on proceeds as donations are still coming in, a week after the race. Thank you to everyone that has donated so generously and fundraised so well to get us over our goal.
As a 100% volunteer organization, supported by the George Pocock Rowing Foundation, we strive to maintain the lowest operational costs possible so that Komen receives all of the profits from our event.
HOme of the Pink Erg
Seattle Row for the Cure is THE home of the Pink Erg. We began this fun team competition for both youth and masters teams in 2016. Since then, we have given away 6 Pink Ergs to the top fundraising teams. This year, we are shaking it up. ALL TEAMS CAN WIN A PINK ERG!
All Junior/Youth teams that fundraise $8k or more will receive a pink erg.
All Masters teams that fundraise $10k or more will receive a pink erg.
Let's fill Gas Works Park with Pink Erg every year!
T-shirts and More!
Every individual that exceeds $150 in fundraising and every individual that contributes $150 or more towards RFTC will receive our uniquely designed RFTC T-shirt. Have your fundraising in by September 15th to be eligible and you can pick up your T-shirt at Gas Works Park the morning of the races. In addition to the T-shirts, we will have individual fund raising prizes including J&L apparel, Pink Pogies, and RFTC Hydroflasks.
