The Pull For a Cure Challenge offers competitors in the Head Of The Charles the opportunity to use their participation in the Regatta as a platform to garner financial support for breast cancer research. All funds are collected through the Pull For a Cure website and go directly to the breast cancer research efforts of the American Cancer Society. Participation in Pull For a Cure has no bearing on entries or entry applications. Participating crews will be recognized in the official HOCR program and viewing guide.

Participants in Pull For a Cure compete in the Head Of The Charles in lieu of walking in the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk. Funds raised through Pull For a Cure benefit the American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer in Boston walk, which will be held on Sunday, October 5th!

In May 2011, the group from Brown who had begun the Pull For a Cure initiative contacted the Regatta Office in hopes of gaining the official support of the Head Of The Charles. Regatta staff worked closely with both Brown and the American Cancer Society team to incorporate Pull For a Cure into the HOCR while remaining true to the original mission and the wishes of its founders. The Head Of The Charles is proud to support the bold and inspiring efforts of Dan Aziz and the rest of the Brown crew and to aid in promoting his initiative to the larger rowing community.
