2018 Foundation Fund
Flashback to April 2013 - We first received the email from Aaron, a local paraplegic athlete who wanted to row. Not knowing anything about adaptive rowing, but having a great passion for rowing - we said, "Sure, let's try it!".
Fast forward 5 years, we have kept that make-it-work attitude alive and well, bringing inclusive rowing to so many athletes needing adaptation. Our work has continued to be creative, innovative, and challenging.
With your support, we can start the year strong, meet our obligations like rent and salary and enjoy stress-free planning, all the while continuing our work to bring inclusive rowing and competitive para-rowing to the PacNW.
Last January, you helped us raise almost $10,000 to get the year started and we purchased some great equipment and took care of important business. THANK YOU!
This coming year it's bigger, the stakes are higher, the reach is wider, and we've got more rowers every week interested in getting strong and fast.
Here's some pieces of that strong start for 2018:
- Headquarters/Office operation
- Training Partner addition - CrossFit RE: Columbia City
- High Performance 2018 Program launch
- Equipment upgrade - a new racing boat and oars
- New regatta participation
- International para-competitive development camps operation x 2
- Rowing Adventure Days program delivery
Can we count on your support today?
