BENEFITING: B CURED
EVENT DATE: Oct 23, 2010
Kristen Erickson and her son, William Bass, a 7th grader, will row in the parent/child race at the Head of the Charles crew regatta in Cambridge, MA on October 23rd. One of the world's largest and most challenging rowing events, the Head of the Charles attracts over 200,000 spectators. Kristen and William will participate as B*CURED Athletes, raising money for brain cancer research and sporting the bright orange and blue colors of B*CURED. Kristen's husband, Jonathan Bass, also an avid rower, died three years ago from brain cancer on Head of the Charles weekend, so this race is especially poignant for her family. Both Kristen's sons, William and Christopher, have developed a love for this challenging sport.
