008 - Rowing For a Cause

Mar 29, 2016, 01:34 AM

In Episode 8, the Short and Snarky Coxswains discuss the inaugural Indoor World Rowing Championships - and how one man got 27 random people in Tanzania to participate.

Leaving us all to ask the question -- How many people in Tanzania have you taught to row today?

We interview Jenn Gibbons, Executive Director and Coach of the Recovery On Water (ROW) Program in Chicago, IL.

The Recovery On Water Program was founded by Jenn, and Breast Cancer Survivor Sue Ann Glaser, as a way to empower breast cancer survivors and give them a unique opportunity to interact, become active in their recovery, and gain support from fellow survivors.

Jenn is a University of Michigan Alumni, has rowed the 1,500 mile perimeter of Lake Michigan, former coach for St Ignatius Crew, 2011 USRowing Masters Coach of the Year, and Hot Wings Enthusiast.

We love her. And you're going to love her, too! www.recoveryonwater.org (Partnered with FOMO Active Wear - 20% of any online transaction for the month of March will go toward the ROW program.)

This episode, and every episode of the Way Nuff Podcast is written and produced by the Short and Snarky Coxswains.
