BENEFITING: Capital Rowing Club, Inc.
EVENT DATE: Mar 12, 2016
Capital Juniors invite YOU and your friends to meet, eat, and compete at our annual erg-a-thon fundraiser. Like a walk-a-thon, an erg-a-thon raises money for a certain amount of meters completed on a rowing machine or "erg." Activities include an ergathon, short sprint races, a chance to try an erg, membership opportunities, music, food, prizes and more!
Capital Juniors combines academics and competitive rowing to build in DC's young people discipline, camaraderie, fitness, knowledge of water safety, and stewardship for the Anacostia River. Through our program, all DC youth, especially those from low-income areas, have access to rowing and academic support and can apply the lessons they learn in excellence toward sucessful futures.
All proceeds go to Capital Juniors. Did you know Capital provides scholarships to those that can not afford to row? Wonder how your money is spent?
