Rowing for Active Recovery (ROAR) is a learn-to-row program for cancer patients and survivors. ROAR is supported by the CaroMont Health Foundation, allowing the program to be delivered at no cost to participants. Both indoor rowing machine workouts as well as sessions rowing outdoors on the Catawba River will be offered. ROAR has the goal of empowering cancer patients and survivors to improve their strength, endurance, and ultimately, quality of life through rowing.
Rowing is a safe, low-impact sport providing a whole-body workout that can help improve physical fitness, energy levels, and self-esteem before, during, or after treatment. ROAR will meet your needs wherever you are. And while knowing how to swim is important, life jackets and flotation devices are always on hand.
