2014-2015 "SPIRIT" Fundraiser

Naiades Oncology Rowing is a team of cancer survivors who use the water and this great sport to come together as one for physical and emotional healing from the battle they have fought. We ask you to share your story or that of your loved one with us as we build this team and acquire much needed equipment.

The goal of our fundraiser is to “fill a new boat” with the spirits of those affected by cancer. You can have your loved ones — both survivors and victims — remembered on the sides of the new boat we are working hard to acquire.

Donations are welcome and can be made directly through
