My Story: CLRA is supporting the Harlem Classic as we believe in opening the doors to higher education through rowing and academic excellence to inner-city youth.
The Harlem River Classic is an event that brings together rowers to support Row New York through rowing. Experienced rowers are invited to put together a boat of friends and colleagues for a friendly competition in the form of a 1,000 meter sprint. All of the proceeds of this event will directly support our youth programs which empower young people from New York City’s under-resourced communities to build strength, gain confidence and pursue excellence through the unique sport of rowing.
