Help me make a difference in our community while becoming a better rower!

What is Row For Humanity?

Row for Humanity is a fundraiser put on by Kansas State Crew,Manhattan Junior Crew, and the Manhattan Community Rowing Club on behalf of the Manhattan Area Habitat for Humanity.

How does it work?

On Saturday, May 8th, our rowers will hold a “row-a-thon”! Each person will see how many meters they can row on a machine in one hour. Prior to the event, participants will gather donations from family, friends and neighbors. People can pledge a dollar amount per 100m rowed by their favorite rower, make a flat donation, or just come and watch this feat of endurance!

How is the money divided?

Our rowers donate at least 25% of the donations they raise to the Manhattan Area Habitat for Humanity. The rest of our proceeds will offset the costs of the Summer season and/or the costs of competition travel.

Why you should support rowing!

Hello! My name is Ava Reese, I am a sophomore at Manhattan High School, and I have been rowing for MJC for almost a year now. Being a part of Manhattan Junior Crew has helped me in so many ways, and I have met some really good friends, people I never would have met if I hadn’t started rowing. Besides rowing, I also play competitive volleyball, play the cello in a couple of orchestras, and am involved in many activities in MHS and in our Manhattan community. I really appreciate you donating to the Row for Humanity fundraiser.
