The 14th-annual National Learn to Row Day was sponsored by USRowing and Concept2 and took place on Saturday, June 6, 2015, in rowing clubs and health clubs throughout the United States. Thank you to all participants who visited the Quinsigamond Rowing Club and enjoyed an early morning row on the lake. Competitive and recreational rowers range in age from 12 to over 90, so it is never too early or too late to take up the sport. Hope to see you again on the lake! Enjoy the #NLTRD photos compliments of www.marantostudios.com. Always handy to have a photographer as a member, Thanks Joyce!
Created and supported by the Mass General Cancer Center, the one hundred honors 100 Everyday Amazing individuals and groups each year who are changing how we fight cancer. Their commitment inspires us all to take action. “Varsity rower Daniel Aziz literally launched his annual breast cancer fundraising and awareness initiative, Pull for a Cure, on the water. A junior at Brown University in 2009, he recruited his entire crew team to help. The team raised $25,000 leading up to and culminating at the prestigious Head Of The Charles® Regatta, held in Boston every October, breast cancer awareness month.
QRC’s Ami Mehr was the challenge’s top fundraiser in 2014. “As a recent breast cancer survivor and rower, it was extremely meaningful for me to see so many rowers on the Charles River wearing pink,” she says. “Dan’s organization is very important because it gives rowers an opportunity to raise awareness about breast cancer at one of the world’s largest regattas.”
