Help me make a difference in our community while becoming a better rower!
What is Row 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!
I had the good fortune to run into the Manhattan Rowing Club last August during an enrollment at MHS. I said “I think I still have some years of eligibility left”. That’s when they said, Well we do have a Community Rowing Club for adults. I was so excited, I was in, I wanted to learn more. What I didn’t know at the time was that the COMMUNITY part of the club was as important to me as learning all about the rowing.
I have truly enjoyed being on the water in the scull (boat) and in the gym improving my times and dedication to learning the techniques and teamwork. I love the work out and the technical pieces of it all. I am looking forward to finishing this year strong and I always love a challenge. I would appreciate your support as we Row for Habitat for Humanity and seek to increase the “Community” of rowing and encourage others to come out and have this experience.
