Hi! My name is Bryanna McDonald. Ever since I was in 6th grade, seeing my brother row and seeing rowing completely change his life, I had wanted to join this amazing sport. This is my third year rowing and I absolutely love it and, much like my brother, rowing completely changed my life for the better. My closest friends are my teammates who I get to spend everyday with. This sport has changed me as a person and made me healthier, happier, and even a better student. Last year, unfortunately, after a race, half of the Varsity Women's boats suffered from damage in an accident when they fell of our trailer, most of them unable to be restored to the way they were before. These were our best boats and to take their place, we use lower quality and older boats that are out of date and just don't get the job done as well. LGRC is a non-profit organization, and to race competitively and keep up with other clubs, we need top quality boats and new equipment regularly. To make this possible, we rely solely on donations. Thank you so much for taking the time to read this and I hope you make it possible for our team to have outstanding performance!
