Row It Forward Scholarship

The mission of Naiades Oncology Rowing is to serve the physical and emotional needs of cancer survivors through a shared rowing experience that fosters wellness, courage, determination and healing. The cost of maintaining this rowing program is considerable and is funded in significant part by fees paid by each participant.

Our mission is frustrated whenever these fees present a barrier for those most in need of experiencing the best that Naiades has to offer. For this reason, the Board of Directors has established the Row It Forward Financial Support Scholarship Program, supported by a dedicated fund and on-going donations, for those who need financial assistance to participate in Naiades programs. For more information, check the program description above. To apply, complete the Application and submit it for consideration.

"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.

Our fundraiser, to “fill a new boat” with the spirits of those affected by cancer, continues and it is not too late to have your loved ones — both survivors and victims — remembered on the sides of our new boat, launched on May 16th of 2015 !

Donations are still welcomed to support our equipment fundraising and can be made directly through

You may also download the Spirit Fund order form and mail a donation directly to:
