WeCanRow-Philly, founded in 2018, is a rowing program developed specifically for breast cancer survivors. WeCanRow is a program of Whitemarsh Boat Club, located at Hines Rowing Center.

The WeCanRow program boosts both physical and mental health through the sport of rowing. Participants will develop strength and endurance by being physically active. They will regain confidence and a sense of well-being by connecting with a team of other breast cancer survivors who have shared similar experiences.

WeCanRow-Philly meets on Monday evenings from April through September, and Saturday mornings in October. No experience is necessary. Each year we conduct two Learn to Row periods, April-June and July-September. Following the Learn to Row period, participants have the opportunity to continue rowing with WeCanRow and/or Whitemarsh Boat Club as time and interest allow.

All ages and levels of fitness are welcome. The only requirement is that you have been treated for breast cancer. Rowing is a no impact, lifelong sport. Our coaches have experience working with breast cancer survivors and will teach you everything in a friendly and supportive environment. A doctor’s note stating that you are cleared for physical activity is required.
