October in National Breast Cancer Awareness Month!
Would you like to support a fine team race for a great cause? Well, get out that wallet and read the message below from Kathy Hughes, PBC Team Captain, Pull for a Cure.
For more information about Pull for a Cure, please click here.
Throughout the year, PBC also provides a home base for WeCanRow DC, a volunteer-directed, not-for-profit, educational and support organization offering breast cancer survivors an introduction to the sport of sweep rowing, and continuing recreational and competitive rowing opportunities.

Good luck at the HOCR, Ladies! – PS
We’re asking you to please sponsor our Women’s Quad as we race the Directors Challenge event at the Head of the Charles Regatta (HOCR), on Sunday, October 23rd.
The HOCR partners with Pull for a Cure, an organization that benefits breast cancer research through the American Cancer Society and Making Strides Against Breast Cancer. We’re racing to raise money for this important cause, but we need your help!
Choose from the following ways to pledge:
1. THE SURE SHOT: Our average raw time completing the course is 20:37. (Reminder, we are 62 years young, and one year, it was snowing when we finished the race!) We would like a base pledge of $20.37 from everyone, if you can do it!
2. THE FREE-FORM: Pledge as much or as little as you would like. You decide the terms; for example, challenge us to beat our time from previous years! [No, you cannot say that they owe you money after the race.]
To make your pledge, simply go to the Potomac Boat Club Team Pull for a Cure website, Kathy Hughes, Team Captain, at http://main.acsevents.org/site/TR?px=23120214&pg=personal&fr_id=34541.
Thank you, one and all!
Kathy Hughes, Nancy Petrisko, Camilla Durfee, and Gail Edie
