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!

A lot of people don’t know very much about rowing, which is one of the things I like about it.  I also love that rowing a sport that works your whole body.  My favorite part is that in order to be successful you have to work as a team!  I haven’t been rowing long but I love how welcoming the team has been.  When you join this team you are joining a family.  You have to trust everyone that is in your boat and if you need help they are always there to have your back.  Rowing is an amazing sport and I’m so glad I found it.  

I am excited for this opportunity to work with my team in order to raise funds for a great cause!
