Choose your own cycling adventure, and benefit Recovery on Water! Ride4ROW is a one-day bicycle ride that lets you choose your route length and explore a beautiful area just outside of Chicago. This immersive, community-centric fundraising experience takes place in and around St. Charles, Illinois, and all proceeds from the ride will go toward the sustainability of Recovery on Water (ROW).

How Does Ride4ROW Work?

Route distances vary from 35 to 100 miles, and all rides can be completed in a single day. No matter which route you choose, your participation and fundraising efforts will help ensure ROW can provide the free fitness and support programs that are critical for breast cancer patients and survivors working to define their “new normal” following diagnosis.

Ride4ROW participants can register as individuals or teams, and with everyone working toward a specific fundraising minimum. Along the way, cyclists will enjoy beautiful routes, full access to ROW’s support and gear (SAG) vehicle, and a community experience to remember.

Who is Recovery on Water?

Recovery on Water is a rowing team and fitness community that empowers breast cancer patients and survivors to get fit, become active in their recovery, and gain personal support from other women whose lives have been forever changed by a breast cancer diagnosis. We offer year-round exercise programs—available seven days a week in locations throughout Chicago—at no cost to our team members.

Life after a breast cancer diagnosis is never the same, and the battle never truly ends. That’s why women who join ROW are often members for life—because it’s important that they have a regular source of support for their ongoing journey. At ROW, those navigating life after a breast cancer diagnosis can begin to reclaim their sense of self and continue living life to its fullest.
