WeCanRow-Philly is a rowing program developed specifically for breast cancer survivors. This program helps them regain control over their bodies at a time when they may be feeling vulnerable, encourages them to be active, and connects them with other women who have undergone similar experience through a healthy and exhilarating sport.

WeCanRow-Philly was organized in 2018.  The goals are to help women who have been treated for breast cancer to:

  • Develop strength and endurance.
  • Become active participants in their own recovery.
  • Regain control over their bodies.
  • Rediscover the joy of movement.
  • Contribute to a mutually empowering recovery team.

Located at Hines Rowing Center with the enthusiastic support of Lois Trench-Hines, this program partners with Whitemarsh Boat Club.

WeCanRow-Philly meets once a week.  No experience is necessary.  All ages and levels of fitness are welcome.  Rowing is a no impact, lifelong sport that can be enjoyed well into your 90s.  Our coaches have experience working with breast cancer survivors and will teach you everything in a friendly and supportive environment.  A doctor’s note is required stating that you are cleared for physical activity.
