Crews who race and raise over £30 for the charity are entered into a free draw to win one of the new Rowperfect Rowing Simulators and the second prize of a set of 8 Magik Rowing oarlocks.
Maggie Hitchins from Breast Cancer Haven called me today to say that 17 crews have signed up with www.justgiving.com sites for their individual crew fundraising efforts.
She is hoping 50 crews will take part this year, as 39 participated last year and raised over £10,000 for the charity. She told me
"Many women expect to know someone who has had breast cancer or to get it themselves during their lifetime. We get fantastic support from women across the UK who understand the value of the work we do to support breast cancer victims and their families. We are grateful to everyone who takes the time to raise money for us while participating in this rowing race."
