ROWATHON DONATION

 

Please remember to add the name of the rower you are sponsoring in the check out - thank you!!

 

Our 2017-2018 rowing season has begun and we will be starting right off with our 20 mile row.     I am writing to ask if you would sponsor me for our 2017 Row-a-thon! This is our largest fundraiser and supports our program in the areas of equipment, coaching and transportation. 

It is through your support that our programs flourish.  I have over 202 teammates this year, and we are already training for fall racing!  Our team had a very successful summer with athletes and coaches representing SRA in five different states and three countries. Four athletes from our ARION program qualified to represent the US Team and will be rowing at Worlds later this month.  The ARION athletes are also some of our coaches.  We have the opportunity to spend time with and be coached by these talented people with Olympic size dreams every day!

 

With our new Training Center, the additional ARION coaches and expanded after school transportation, SRA has been able to open it’s doors even wider to the youth in our community. It is the generosity of family and friends like you that have made this possible and allows SRA to continue making a strong and positive impact in our community.   

 

Message from our Executive Director: “While SRA is proud of its accomplishments on the water, our real success is the positive impact on the lives of the families involved. This past year our ARION program brought in some unique ways we can build on that impact to the youth in our programs, from coaching brand new rowers to special practices training along side the junior competitive rowers.  Practices that challenge and expose young athletes to reach beyond what they thought was possible in strength and speed.  We even saw the impact these role models had on the seniors as they prepared to head off to college.  It is true - the rising tide raises all boats!” - Coach Cat

I’m excited to work and train with teammates and coaches that truly care about our well being both on and off the water.  Will you be part of helping SRA in continuing our mission to promote the sport and culture of rowing, foster excellence and integrity in our athletes, and grow Saratoga as a premiere rowing destination?  Thank you for your support!

 

P.S. SRA is committed to never turning away athletes for lack of financial means.  If you can afford to help a less fortunate child participate, we ask you to consider giving a little bit extra directly to our Rowers Assistance Program.*
