This season at the Head of the Regatta, the men's crew team will challenge themselves to not only win the race, as they very nearly did last season, but also to raise funds and awareness to fight breast cancer. The team will use the prestigious regatta, which attracts over 300,000 spectators annually, to attempt to raise $10,000 through their "Pull for a Cure" event.
Junior Dan Aziz, who is spearheading the fundraiser, had the following to say:
"October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, so this year we decided to add some extra purpose to our competition and raise funds to find a cure for Breast Cancer. We plan to make this an annual event and hopefully engage the entire rowing community in this event. Please help us not only beat the competition, but more importantly beat Cancer! If you would like to join our team and sponsor us, please use the link below to make a secure online donation. Pulling together, we can beat breast cancer! Thank you for your support."
