Saugatuck Rowing Club

521 Riverside Avenue, Westport, CT, USA

In January 2018, The Saugatuck Rowing Club partnered with The Smilow Family Breast Health Center at Norwalk Hospital to provide rowing as a form of mental, emotional and physical support for their breast cancer patients. Approaching its third season, the program has become more powerful and life-changing than anyone could ever have imagined.

The Survive-OARS Breast Cancer Survivor Rowing Program is a truly holistic approach to healing from the inside out. Rowing heals the soul, calms the mind, and strengthens the body while building confidence and an impenetrable support system. We counter-balance the important western medicine Norwalk Hospital provides with the empowering gift of water, wind, vitamin D, exercise, learning and friendship.

Just like ripples that expand across the water, our program has a positive ripple effect that improves patients' lives and the lives of those around them.

Please help us continue this important program. Cancer has taken something from each of these women and we will do everything in our power to make them whole again. We are selling tickets to the event, as well as, biodegradable, freeze-dried Petal Garden rose petals that will be scattered onto the Saugatuck River at sunset, turning it pink, in honor of everyone who has (directly or indirectly) faced this pervasive disease.
