Thank you for taking the time to consider a small donation and sponsor a passionate, hard working group of rowers at St. Ignatius Chicago Row (SICR). This year’s Rowathon event will take place at Rowhouse in Old Town, the afternoon of February 29. Our fundraiser is important to help raise $50,000.
SICR is entirely self-funded, tax deductible 501C3, and depends heavily on donations to offset equipment, operation, rental and scholarship costs. Updated equipment is paramount for the safety and training of our athletes to compete at the highest level and win races.
Winning races have become the norm for SICR’s driven athletes. Founded in 1996, SICR strives to provide athletes with the best opportunity to compete regionally and nationally against the best of scholastic and club rowing programs. The team’s success on the water also translates to success in the classroom and beyond, as athletes learn the discipline and skills that carry them beyond the waters. Many rowers have gone on to row and study at preeminent institutions across the country. As a varsity club sport, SICR counts on the efforts of the parent volunteers to support the planning and implementation of facilities, equipment, logistics and regatta support.
SICR continues to remain one of the most highly recognized student athletic programs as they head into the 2020 season. With an impressive roster of coaches including former Olympians and Ivy League rowers, SICR is one of the top national competitive rowing programs in the city, offering male and female students the opportunity to foster confidence and character development. Athletes come from various socio-economic backgrounds, and approximately 25% of rowers are on need-based scholarship and pay no fees (or partial fees). SICR remains a club that is separate from the school and is an entirely self-funded, tax deductible 501C3. SICR
