Sunday, March 12, 20178:00 a.m. - 8:00 p.m. Stong's Market 4221 Dunbar Street, Vancouver UBC Rowing has a special connection to BC Cancer Foundation. As a team composed of university student athletes from across the country and even the globe, many of us have been affected by cancer - if not personally, then through family, friends or teammates. This year we return with our 5th Annual Erg-a-thon to raise awareness and funds in support of cancer research and care at BC Cancer Agency. During our erg-a-thon, each rower will spend one hour on the indoor rowing machines - or ergometers, as they are formally called - before switching off with a fellow rower, and together we will keep the ergometer fans spinning for 12 hours straight! Our team is excited to take on this challenge again. During the event, athletes who have completed their one hour row will be out and about collecting donations from customers and passers-by. This is always a fun and entertaining event and we encourage all to come out and cheer us on as we do our best to promote awareness and raise funds in support of BC Cancer Foundation to benefit leading edge research at BC Cancer Agency.
