For the past 5 or 6 years, Grand Rapids Rowing has participated in this charity row. ROW is Recovery On Water and supports women who have gone through breast cancer treatment and/or surgery. These brave women and their equally strong spouses, family, and friends are such an inspiration. We have close ties to this team, as our own Jen Schafer rowed with Jenn Gibbons (head of ROW) in college. Last summer, Dave and Julie coached and coxed (respectively) for their ROW Power 10 Camp on Lake Leelanau. We would LOVE to have a strong show of support by sending a bevy of GRRC rowers down to Chicago. Please consider registering, but do it soon. The boats fill up fast. If you can't row, please consider donating to one of the team members who can.
Arrangements for lodging and such are made once the group is set. We will create a Slack channel for St Pats Sprints.
