In our 10-year history, WeCanRow DC has introduced the sport of sweep rowing to over 100 women navigating breast cancer survivorship from the Washington DC area. Our program begins with a Learn to Row Weekend experience designed to introduce participants to all aspects of sweep rowing – the rowing stroke, the boats and oars, and the boathouse, both on land and on the water.

  • Annual Learn to Row Weekend at Capital Rowing Club, Anacostia Community Boathouse
  • Novice sweep rowing at Capital Rowing Club, Anacostia Community Boathouse
  • Summer/fall recreational and competitive rowing at Potomac Boat Club, Georgetown
  • Winter conditioning at various locations in the DC area
  • Weekend ventures to area regattas and other team building events Year-round support and fitness activities promoting breast cancer survivorship
  • Healer’s Row, an afternoon introduction for family, friends, and practitioners

  • Assert control over their bodies
  • Rediscover the joy of movement
  • Contribute to a mutually empowering recovery team
