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 a silver and bronze medal at USrowing Youth Nationals this past Spring, as well as athletes getting recruited to some of the US' top Colleges and Universities.
Nereid has been growing rapidly over the past three years. The club has grown to provide rowing opportunities to over 100 youth rowers and 70 adult rowers in the Northern New Jersey community. To keep up with the club's growth, the club needs to purchase new shells to allow more athletes to access the great sport of rowing! As a non-profit 501c3, fundraising is the main way the club can keep up!
We have a goal of raising $35,000 to allow for the purchase of two more boats for the club. A 4x and a coxed 4+ from Hudson Boat Works.
Any donation amount is welcome and appreciated. Please join us in taking our team to the top!
Thank you for your support!
