Help me make a difference in our community while becoming a better rower!
What is Row For Humanity?
How does it work?
On Monday, February 17, 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 Spring Break Training Camp held at Baylor University in Waco, TX, and/or the costs of spring competition travel.
Why you should support rowing!
Hello! My name is Chauntel Burpee. Rowing has been an integral part of my life for five years now and has had a huge impact on the person I am today. Coming on to the team my freshman year of high school, I was meek and indecisive, but through coxing and hard work learning how to row, I learned the important skills of leadership and motivation. Rowing has been nothing but a positive in my life that’s granted me valuable lessons I can carry with me forever.
