To augment the supply over the past month and a half, Project C.U.R.E. has conducted supply drives in Denver, Colorado Springs, Nashville, Chicago, Phoenix, and Houston. These efforts have provided 66 pallets of donated medical supplies that have been distributed to health care systems within those communities. Beyond the donations secured through the collection drives for local communities, Project C.U.R.E. has delivered over 384 shipments of medical supplies and equipment which is over 8,700 boxes, throughout the United States as a part of the pivot to domestic support earlier in March - these shipments have been worth over $3,000,000. Similar drives are being planned for Kansas City and other locations.

The 2020 Global Virtual Rowing Challenge presented by Rowers Choice is a worldwide event intending to unite the athletic community through virtual competition. The first of its kind, the GVRC is open to anyone - junior rower, collegiate rower, crossfit enthusiast, hopeful olympian, former olympian, master athlete or paralympic athlete - who loves the thrill and adrenaline rush of competition. With the rapid spread of COVID19, the rowing community lost the opportunity to compete in traditional competitions such as the NCAA Women's Rowing Championship, the USRowing Youth National Championships and even more so the 2020 Olympics. The team at Rowers Choice put their heads together and came up with this unique idea of a single knockout tournament that could be done from the comfort, and safety, of home. With the generous support of sponsors, the 2020 Global Virtual Rowing Challenge will run from the end of May until early July when champions of each of the 12 event categories will be crowned. RideBackwards (official event merchandiser) and Rowers Choice are pleased to be donating $2 from every event clothing item purchased to Project C.U.R.E. to support their vision of distributing medical supplies to those in need.
