Pulling for Pink

Pulling for PinkPulling for Pink is a breast cancer awareness event that is part of the Austin Rowing Club‘s annual Head of the Colorado Regatta (known as the PumpkinHead) each October. A uniquely-Austin event, Pulling for Pink combines our love of Lady Bird Lake with the power of community support to TURN THE RIVER PINK with friends, loved ones, and warriors in the battle against breast cancer.
