Our one-of-a-kind floating hospitality garden has beverages available to supporters ages 21 and up! It offers a great view of the regatta! The boat will be anchored to the dock along the trail at Festival Beach (see map above).
We challenge more than 800 participants to help Turn the River Pink with your own creative displays and costumes throughout the day!
Come wearing your PINK, or stop by one of our locations to purchase our limited edition t-shirts, hats, and other Pulling for Pink wear!
Our venue tent will also provide information about local resources and breast cancer support provided by the BCRC. If you've been diagnosed, support someone who has been, or want to learn more about your breast health, this will be a great opportunity to speak with our volunteers and learn more about what BCRC can do to help!
Festival Beach - Vendor Booth Area - Look for the PINK Balloons!!
We will have t-shirts, hats, headworks visors, and more for sale - remember, every penny stays here to benefit the Breast Cancer Resource Center of Texas in Austin, TX.
Hospitality Garden - We will dock our two-level floating hospitality garden on the shore of Lady Bird Lake in the center of the rowing venue. Follow the Hike and Bike Trail - you can't miss us!
PLEASE NOTE - The Hospitality Garden will be docked on the Hike and Bike Trail at the wooden dock. As such, the view from and availability of the wooden dock as a viewing point will not be available. This is a charity event, for a great cause and we welcome all parents, families, and spectators for an nominal donation.
Since 1995, the women of the Breast Cancer Resource Center have taken their own devastating personal experiences and used them to help others facing similar circumstances. Managing the physical and emotional aspects of breast cancer is challenging enough— understanding the diagnosis, determining next steps, distinguishing between multiple providers, keeping track of appointments, procedures, and other important information can be overwhelming.
Professionally trained and well-versed in local and regional resources, BCRC’s knowledgeable staff is committed to assisting women in finding their way through the complex maze of today’s healthcare system. Simply put, even the most ground-breaking advances in healthcare are meaningless if a woman can’t get to her appointments because she doesn’t have a ride, can’t find a babysitter, or is paralyzed with fear.
The Head of the Colorado Regatta (also known as PumpkinHead Regatta) will be held on Saturday, October 28th in Austin, Texas. Pulling for Pink will take place throughout the day on the race course and on site at Festival Beach (East of IH-35), along the shores of Lady Bird Lake!
All monies raised throughout the day will be donated on behalf of the Austin Rowing Club to the local Austin-based, non-profit Breast Cancer Resource Center. You can also donate to the cause by making an online donation today!
