The Story

EVENT DATE: Nov 15, 2017

Thank you for taking the time to consider a small donation and sponsor a passionate, hard working group of rowers at St. Ignatius Chicago Row (SICR).  This year’s Rowathon event will take place at the Eleanor boathouse on Nov. 11th at 6:00am.  Our fundraiser is important to help raise $45,000 for a new 8 seat racing shell.

SICR is entirely self-funded, tax deductible 501C3, and depends heavily on donations to help offset equipment, operation and scholarship costs.  Updated equipment is paramount for the safety and training of our athletes to compete at the highest level and win races. 

Winning races have become the norm for SICR’s driven athletes. Founded in 1996, SICR strives to provide athletes with the best opportunity to compete regionally and nationally against the best of scholastic and club rowing programs. The team’s success on the water also translates to success in the classroom and beyond, as athletes learn the discipline and skills that carry them beyond the waters. Many rowers have gone on to row and study at preeminent institutions across the country. As a varsity club sport, SICR counts on the efforts of the parent volunteers to support the planning and implementation of facilities, equipment, logistics and regatta support.

SICR continues to remain one of the most highly recognized student athletic programs as they head into the 2017-2018 Season, although rowing is a sport rarely offered in Chicagoland schools. With an impressive roster of coaches including former Olympians and Ivy League rowers, SICR is one of the top national competitive rowing programs in the city, offering male and female students the opportunity to foster confidence and character development. Athletes come from various socio-economic backgrounds, and approximately 25% of rowers are on need-based scholarship and pay no fees (or partial fees).SICR remains a club that is separate from the school and is an entirely self-funded, tax deductible 501C3. SICR has the largest number of athletes participating of any school sport. The club has won numerous national awards, most recently obtaining a Silver Medal in the Frogtown Regatta in Toledo, Ohio.
