Volunteer of the Year Award

Kathryn L. Furano was an avid rower, fierce competitor and a truly kind, giving woman. As a member of BPRC she served on the Board for many years and always had a vibrant smile for all.

The Volunteer of the Year Award is presented in her memory in recognition of club members who have made invaluable contributions to BPRC through outstanding initiative, activity and involvement, best personifying the unselfish spirit of our sport.
