Rowing for All ~ Memorial Crew
Organized by: Julianna Woods
We are a fledging high school crew club, trying to grow our team. Our team is fundraising to help provide funds for scholarships and uniforms, so anyone at our school who wants to row will not be limited by financial means.
The sport of rowing offers individuals the chance to challenge themselves, while learning valuable lessons in teamwork, which is essential to the sport and in life. It is one of the healthiest full-body workouts one can do as a life-long sport. What's more, rowing requires dedication and commitment, keeping athletes busy, out in the fresh air, with less time for trouble elsewhere.
Since I started rowing last year, I've been surprised at the passion I now have for the sport, and I actually enjoy and welcome the physical and mental work it takes to succeed.
If you've ever been involved in crew, or another sport, you know the benefits that involvement provided you. That involvement no doubt helped to shape who you are. We are trying to provide the same good for others. Any support you can provide is appreciated more than you'll realize.
