About
Joseph While
Thank you for visiting DC Row for the Cure.  My name is Joseph While and this cause is very important to me.  In middle school, one of my best friends was diagnosed with cancer. It was a hard moment in his life, and all of his supportive friends and I had to watch as he suffered at such a young age. Luckily, he has been in remission since, but I still felt like I had to do something to help improve cancer treatments through funding for cancer research. 
 
Though he did not have breast cancer, one of my mother’s best friends was also recently diagnosed, and I have seen how horrible cancer can be; and I know that I have to do everything I can to help save a life and a broken family from the devastating reality of cancer’s affect on the millions of people across the globe.

Our inaugural event took place in 2015 and successfully met our our donation goal of $5,000.   See photos from 2015 .
 
I am thrilled to be working in collaboration with Row for the Cure and putting together DC Row for the Cure to support and contribute to Susan G. Komen, DC Affiliate.  Our second annual regatta is scheduled for June 25, 2016, and I'm excited to see you there.
