The Journey

In the summer of 2012, Founder and Coach of Recovery on Water, Jenn Gibbons will row the entire 1,500 mile perimeter of Lake Michigan. Departing from Chicago and along the coast of Illinois, Wisconsin, Michigan and Indiana, she will be “stopping by” in port towns along the lake–bringing awareness to the vital tool that exercise plays in the fight against breast cancer.

A trip like this has never been done before. Jenn will be rowing 30 miles a day, stopping only to sleep and share the mission of ROW. She will consume 5,000 calories worth of dehydrated food a day, and sleep in her vessel, Liv.

This will be Jenn’s first experience with long distance rowing.  As a part of this solo row, she is raising funds and awareness for Recovery on Water (ROW), the charitable organization she founded in 2008 that serves as a rowing team for breast cancer survivors. All funds raised towards this effort will help provide scholarships and equipment for the ROW team so that more survivors can get fit, fight back, and have fun.
