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 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 has been an integral part of my life for the past 7 years. I started rowing the same day I started high school, and it quickly became one of my greatest passions. It taught me strength, perseverance, and leadership, and molded me into the person I am today. I have made unforgettable memories and found my favorite people through this sport and hope to continue in it as long as I can get into a boat.
