Nereid 2023 Ergathon

Nereid Boat Club, established in 1868, is one of the oldest boat clubs in the nation. It has a history of overcoming challenges, the most famous being an arson fire that destroyed its premises in 1962 but it was revived in 1994 at its current home in Rutherford, NJ on the banks of the Passaic River. Nereid is well known in the rowing world with its Youth Team earning medals at prestigious races including USRowing Summer Nationals in 2021 in the Girls U17 4x, USrowing Youth Nationals in 2022 in the Boys U17 4x and Girls U17 4x, and home of the Head of the Charles Champions in the Girls 4x this past Fall!

We have committed to raising $500 per athlete so we can continue to raise funds to expand, and update our fleet. We are looking to purchase two high-quality used eights to give more kids an opportunity to be a part of the great sport of rowing, at Nereid Boat Club. For every $1 raised, athletes will row 10 meters on January 28th with their teammates. If we hit our team target goal, we would have rowed 190 miles from NYC all the way to the Charles River in Boston to celebrate the historic victory at the Head of the Charles!

When the goal of $20,000 is hit, a matching donation of $10,000 will be given to the club on behalf of a generous donor, so every dollar counts!

If you or your business would like to add a matching donation, please reach out to Coach Zach directly!!

Any donation amount is welcome and appreciated. Please join us in taking our team to the top!

Thank you for your support!
