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!
I first heard about Crew/rowing at my high school open house. My mom suggested I try it, but I took it as a joke. I then tried out for the volleyball team and didn’t make it….so I decided to give Crew a shot. My mom contacted the coaches and they immediately set me up with a ride to the lake. My first day was overwhelming, I was immediately thrown into a quad and pretty much told “row”. (over exaggerated, I got a crash course first). I fell in love at first row. I learned so much and I loved being out on a boat in the water. Crew has helped me stay in shape during my off season and helped my posture. I’ve met so many great friends on the team and I hope to continue rowing throughout high school.
