What is Row For Humanity

Row for Humanity is a fundraiser put on by Kansas State Men’s Crew and Manhattan Junior Crew in cooperation with Manhattan Area Habitat for Humanity. The money raised goes to support both rowing teams and the Manhattan Area Habitat for Humanity.

How Does It Work?

Each crew will hold an “erg-a-thon” at the end of February where each rower will erg for one hour. Prior to the event, participants will gather donations from family, friends and neighbors. What is an erg? An erg is an indoor rowing machine, a.k.a. an ergometer. It can measure distance and power exerted by the rower. It provides an opportunity to continue training when water time is not available.

How is the Money Divided?

The money that each participant raises contributes to the total for his/her team and Habitat for Humanity. Each team donates 25% of its earnings to the Habitat for Humanity. Rowers are using their funds to offset the cost of Spring Break Training Camp held in March at Baylor University in Waco, TX.
