BENEFITING: Rocking the Boat, Inc.
EVENT: Rocking Manhattan 2017
EVENT DATE: Sep 23, 2017
Rocking the Boat is a youth development organization in the South Bronx that serves over 5,000 young people and community members each year, engaging them in traditional wooden boat building, sailing, rowing, and a complex range of environmental science and research projects to restore the Bronx River and develop into empowered and responsible adults. Along with boat builders, sailors, and scientists, there are social workers on staff who help to make these activities as powerful as possible in changing kids' lives and futures.
Please help me celebrate my 4th and final year rowing as Rocking the Boat's board president and reach my fundraising goal to support Rocking the Boat’s critically important work in the nation’s poorest Congressional district.
