The Row for the Cure, sponsored by Station L Rowing in Portland is a fund raising event for the Susan G Komen for the Cure organization. This race is for all non-motorized craft , with divisions for individuals and team entries. The race is 2500 meters, five times the length of our normal competitions. Training takes on a different form with focus and endurance being key. For some of the "Pinks" it is a perfect peak to the annual race season. Although many of us participate in the annual Race for the Cure and other Komen events, this event holds a special meaning for Pink Phoenix and it offer an opportunity to give back to an organization that has supported us year after year. In 2012 Pink Phoenix was recognized for being the 3rd highest fund raiser for this event.
