The Row-A-Thon is quickly approaching and everything that you need to know about the event can be found here. The Row-A-Thon is both a world record attempt as well as a fundraiser. The Rowing team is attempting to break the world’s longest continual erg (rowing machine) time for a small mixed team (3-10 people) of men and women under the age of 30.
When and Where: The Row-A-Thon will take place in the lobby of the Health and Recreation Complex (HRC) starting at 6pm on Friday, September 9 and will continue all day Saturday until 12am Sunday, September 11. The total erg time is projected to be 30 hours.
Who benefits: We are raising money for both the club as well as the Semper Fi Fund. The Semper Fi Fund offers aid to post 9/11 U.S. Veterans from all branches of the military. The funds raised will be divided 50/50 for both organizations.
What is your goal: Our goal is to raise $2,000. As of September 5, we are just over halfway to our goal and are sitting at $1,020. Donations can be made through our crowdrise page here: https://www.crowdrise.com/butler-rowing-row-a-thon
Our Sponsors: We have been fortunate enough to have been sponsored by a handful of organizations so far, which include Enverity Engineering, Starboard Souvenirs, and Yats.
