The Boat Race Viewing Party
The Boat Race is an annual contest between the rowing crews at Oxford and Cambridge Universities, and for the last three years it has helped to raise funds and awareness for Cancer Research UK. This much-loved event dates back to 1829, when the very first Men’s Boat Race was launched as a friendly challenge between old schoolmates. Nearly a century later, in 1927, the first Women’s Boat Race was hosted, and it became a permanent part of the event in the mid-1960’s.
Now the Recovery on Water (ROW) Associate Board is bringing the competitive tradition to Chicago!
Join us on April 7 for the third annual Viewing Party where you can enjoy breakfast, drinks and a little rivalry action.
