Row for the Cure FAQs


We are very disappointed to share that Vancouver Lake continues to be challenged by warm summer temperatures – significantly lower-than-usual water level, excessive milfoil and pools of dead fish. All of these challenges compromise the safety of participants and the experience at the event.  The event must be cancelled for this fall, and we are working with the committee to secure a solid date in April, May or June.  All registrations and fundraising will roll forward to the new date. 

Instead, we will have a casual celebration at Station L Rowing Club on Sunday morning, 10 am-12pm to honor the 25th anniversary and Kathy Frederick’s leadership of Row for the Cure. Along with Kathy, we will celebrate Janna Brown for engaging dragon boat teams and her retirement. Please know an electronic invitation is coming today.
