Help me make a difference in our community while becoming a better rower!
What is Row 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!
I started rowing a year and a half ago with Rowfit and then on the lake last summer.
My youngest daughter and son-in-law rowed at MHS for 4 years and my daughter in college in the NE. I have loved every minute of it. I hope to improve my technique, strength and endurance can eventually compete. Being out on the water with the masters group and making new friends has been fun.
