Elite Summer Rowing

Family and friends, 

If you have not heard from various sources, I have had a unique opportunity arise this summer- to train and compete at an elite level of rowing with the Vesper Boat Club in Philadelphia, potentially in a boat traveling to the U23 (collegiate) rowing world championships!

This is a once in a lifetime opportunity for me, and one chance I am determined not to miss. Countless 5 am mornings, thousands of miles of rowing on the river, both on my own and with my team, and numerous hours coaching and learning the ins and out of what makes a rower have led to this

And so, I am fundraising in order to offset some of the costs that traveling and rowing around the US as well as living in Philadelphia on my own can accrue.  

Any amount would be help immensley , and I would be eternally grateful for any support from fellow rowers, friends, or family.  I truly appreciate your support towards my rowing career.
