Most of our patients already know that I’m an avid rower, having won both national and world titles back in my competitive years. Rowing is a great way to exercise and strengthen your entire body. Now, you can also donate to the Susan G. Komen foundation when you participate in Row for the Cure®.
Fun for All Levels of Rowers
The event kicks off the fall rowing season for juniors, elites and masters in a fun, community service-minded way. All profits are donated to the Susan G. Komen foundation, which gives most of the money back locally to help all people suffering from breast cancer as well as toward research. Our favorite part is seeing the money raised for the cause and reaching out with helping hands to our community members who have breast cancer.
Get Dressed up and Have Fun!
Row for the Cure® is held on the morning of Saturday, September 20. It’s hosted by the George Pocock Rowing Foundation in downtown Seattle. The Pocock Rowing Center is the host of the event, but rowing starts from all local clubs. Many participants get dressed up, so you’ll see feather boas and other crazy clothes. There are eight rowers in each boat, and, coincidentally, breast cancer affects one out of every eight women.
Thinking that this disease could touch the life of one rower from each boat demonstrates the devastating effects of breast cancer. Although this is a race, it’s more about raising money for a great cause that affects so many people.
A Special Offer
Dr. Cummins and Anna are always involved, whether rowing, speaking on health and wellness or offering a special offer to benefit the Seattle Row for the Cure®. Our family will be out of town for a wedding on the East Coast, but will participate by helping raise funds and awareness before and after the regatta, as well as giving a special offer to Row for the Cure® participants:
All new patients for chiropractic and massage will have 100% of their fees donated back to Row for the Cure®.
Wellness is a part of lowering breast cancer risk and encouraging bodies to heal, so we are honored to be a helping hand.
