BENEFITING: CHICAGO ROWING FOUNDATION

EVENT DATE: Feb 25, 2017

THE STORY:

Hi! I am raising funds for the Chicago Rowing Foundation (CRF), the parent organization of the team that I row with. As many of you know, I am currently the coxswain on the CRF high school varsity team and really enjoy the many experiences competing in "crew" has to offer. On February 25, I will be participating in the annual CRF "Erg-a-thon." Here's a link with the event information: http://www.rowchicago.com/ergathon Rowing is an expensive sport due to equipment and maintenance and travel required for competitions. While our season fees help cover some costs, such as coaches' fees and scholarships, we need support from the community to help our teams continue to be competitive. Every dollar helps us provide more financial aid to junior rowers, making rowing a more accessible sport. Help us increase the health of Chicagoans and give students the opportunity to try a potentially life-changing sport! Chicago Rowing Foundation (CRF), a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization, was founded in 1998 with a grant from the U.S. Olympic Committee to make sweep rowing (crews of 4 or 8) accessible and available to students throughout the Chicago metropolitan area. CRF boasts a nationally ranked high school program, a growing middle school program, a recreational program for adults, and a nationally ranked adult Masters competitive team. CRF believes the community deserves a whole-person approach to programming. Through our introductory programs, we give new rowers the tools to live a healthier life, and the chance to gain confidence through strength and focus. For the more competitive Junior rowers, CRF coaches take a comprehensive approach to the physical, mental and social well being of their athletes. Rowing is a sport that demands cardiovascular strength, precise teamwork and mental focus, and our coaches cultivate these hardworking athletes into successful individuals and thus, winning teams. Our adult Masters program gives new and experienced rowers the chance to compete, or simply stay on the water for recreation. Thank you very much for your consideration! Love, Gigi, Lincoln Park High School Class of 2019
