Help me make a difference in our community while making better rowers!

What is Row For Humanity?

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

Rowing is my metaphor for life.

I learned to row as a freshman in college here at K-State.  I was not particularly good at first. But eventually I learned not to be afraid of pushing myself.  I learned that “fun is accomplishing something you didn’t know you could do.” And that mindset has helped me grow through the rest of life’s challenges.  That is the mindset that I hope to cultivate in all the rowers I teach.

Your donations will not only support our Manhattan Area Habitat For Humanity but also Manhattan Junior Crew’s quest to build stronger young people and Manhattan Community Rowing Club’s ability to invite people into this amazing sport.

Partner with me in helping people accomplish things they didn’t think they could do.
