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 love rowing, it’s a sport that gets your blood pumping, it’s a sport that lets you have a great view of the water every day. Rowing is not just a sport, it is a community, it’s friends that become family. Being in rowing has brought my family closer together with each other and with others. Rowing keeps your body and mind in shape, because it lets you get frustration or stress out in an easy fun way. I love rowing because, it’s just a beautiful way to spend your time while also working out at the same time. Being injured and sitting out for the last few months has shown me how much I really love to row and miss my rowing family. I’m excited to get started again this Spring!
