ROWATHON DONATION

 

Please remember to add the name of the rower you are sponsoring in the check out - thank you!!  It is hard to see but it's right under "Do you want to make this a monthly payment".

 

Our 2018-2019 rowing season has begun and we are starting right off with our 20 mile row. I am writing to ask if you would sponsor me for our 2018 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 190 teammates this year and we are excited to begin training for fall racing season. In October, 110 teams will come to Saratoga for the Head of the Fish Regatta, one of the biggest in the country. We get to race against some great crews on our home water and test our skills that we train hard for all season.

Our team had another very successful summer, drawing athletes from across the country to come to Saratoga for top level training as well as sending several SRA athletes and coaches overseas as they qualified to compete at Worlds. My teammates and I are proud to be part of a club where hard work leads to success. It is the generosity of family and friends like you that have made this possible and allows SRA to continue making a 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 as well as the Saratoga community. From the new rower who discovers a sense of pride and accomplishment as their first strokes become stronger and start to move boats, to the 16 seniors from the class of 2018 who headed off to college this month with varying levels of scholarships, to the $8.9 million annual economic impact Saratoga regattas bring to the local economy. SRA believes in going above and beyond both on and off the water, challenging ourselves as well as the athletes to reach beyond what we think is possible in strength, speed and community connections.” - Coach Cat I’m excited to work and train with teammates and coaches that truly care about our well being. 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.*
