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!

HI! My name is Hailey Vardiman and I started rowing for the Manhattan Junior Crew the fall of 2020. The opportunity to be part of the MJC team is something that I cherish everyday. The bonds that I’ve formed with the coaches and teammates are something I will never forget. Last year with corona full throttle, I wanted to try something new. A friend of mine reached out to me and said “Hey!! You should join MJC this season!!!” And me not knowing what in the world I’d get myself into said “sure, sounds fun”. So here we are, with a group of people who basically form a huge family.
