CRF C.A.R.E.S. Well-being Initiative

All donations received will be directed to CRF C.A.R.E.S in honor and memory of CRF athletes Becca Herbig ('19), Garrett Brodersen ('21), and Jack Newhall ('20). Forever in our hearts, as one.

C.A.R.E.S. is the new well-being initiative which stands for Coxswain And Rower Empowerment Support. Our goal is to holistically care for our athletes, coaches, and families throughout the entirety of their time here and give them the tools to be successful beyond the boat. We wish to pursue a positive climate where every athlete matters, there is a commitment to care, and a culture of fostering growth of the whole person.

Funding will allow us to intentionally support the physical, emotional, mental and social needs of our athletes through club initiated activities and strategic partnerships. Immediate needs include:

- BikeErgs and injury prevention tools
- Memorial Garden/Bench at Clark Park
- Professional services including ongoing mental health and grief counselors
- Team bonding activities to promote healing in our club

For more information, see our presentation here . Note, CRF C.A.R.E.S. is a restricted fund at CRF, separate from our general operating budget and scholarship funds.
