Reform4ROW - Sunday, April 28th; 8:30am-12:00pm @ Plank Peoria
Reform4ROW is a Pilates Reformer Circuit Class that Plank Pilates Studio is hosting and we are donating proceeds to Recovery on Water (ROW). Recovery on Water is a rowing team that gives survivors of breast cancer the unique opportunity to interact, become active in their recovery, and gain support from fellow survivors. ROW Peoria is a nonprofit breast cancer survivors’ rowing team. Their focus is on recovery, physical fitness, and support of fellow survivors. They are the first national affiliate program of Recovery on Water (ROW) based out of Chicago.
History of ROW: Founded in 2007 and incorporated in 2008, Recovery On Water (ROW) began as a collaboration between Sue Ann Glaser, a breast cancer survivor, and Jenn Junk, a high school rowing coach. 10 years later, ROW Peoria has become the first national affiliate team of ROW, bringing the sport to breast cancer survivors in the Greater Peoria Area.
The Need for ROW: All members of our team have either received a diagnosis of breast cancer, or carry a high risk gene mutation like BRCA that increases the likelihood of developing breast cancer in their lifetime. These women have undergone surgery, chemotherapy, radiation, or a combination of all three in attempts to treat/prevent their disease. Such treatments may leave patients with significant complications, including lymphedema, obesity, depression, and poor quality of life. Many studies demonstrate the beneficial effects of exercise on breast cancer survivors, showing significant reduction in depressive symptoms and fatigue, and improvements in lymphedema, bone mineral density, body mass index, quality of life, and most significantly, recurrence rates.
