Many of the top masters rowing teams in the Southeast were competing. So why was one boat filled with complete novices, rowing newbies, and breast cancer survivors? To prove a point about the importance of teamwork and the power of belief.

    I could never row in a straight line.
    Do any of you understand just how difficult it is to row in a straight line with only one oar in the water??

    A rowing sisterhood and raising money for breast cancer.  I like the idea of Women Playing for TIME (raising money for breast cancer and the money stays in Central Florida) and the Orlando Rowing Club  playing together, rowing together and MD Anderson Cancer Center benefits.  Everyone looks like they are having so much fun. Win/win.

    Congratulations WPFT rowing team!  What an accomplishment!  I'm so glad you all had the fortitude to go out and do what I couldn't do.  I need to get some "can do" pearls!  I so enjoyed the video and hearing your words of wisdom.  Thank you for representing us in such fine fashion.

    Marc, What can I say?  Once again, you and your team at GB have been able to express what Women Playing For T.I.M.E. is all about in a short video.  I was fortunate to have the opportunity to be a part of this team. In about 8 lessons, Laura Riekki from Orlando Rowing Club, was able to take a group (consisting of 7 women and 1 man) with mostly no prior rowing experience, and turn them in to a team.  Everyone who watches this video can learn a lesson from the survivors, that each new day should be treated as a blessing.  See you at the next event! Wait till you see what we have coming down the pipeline (lol).  Women Playing For T.I.M.E. LOVES and APPRECIATES the Growing Bolder Team!!!!!
