Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one's lifetime." -Mark Twain

 Saratoga's Isaac French with partner Laura Goodkind are on their way to the Senior/Para World Championships !

Hello! Our names are Laura Goodkind and Isaac French. We will represent the United States in the 2017 Senior/Para World Championships in Sarasota, Florida on September 23rd to October 1st 2017.

This summer we have been training in Saratoga Springs, New York at the Saratoga Rowing Association under Para Coach Christopher Meyer. Isaac French is a 17 year old Highschool student from Glenville, NY and Laura Goodkind is a 31 year old athlete from Los Angeles, California.

We are currently fundraising to cover the cost to represent the United States in this race - this includes flights, meals, transportation, equipment rental, and much more at the World Championships. 

We would like to thank Saratoga Rowing Association's coaches, teammates and staff as well as our parents for supporting us as we achieved our goals of representing the US this fall in Sarasota. 

Lastly, we would like to thank you, in advance, for any contributions you can make to us.  Please feel free to share this page via other social media platforms and with friends.
