Nereid Freezing February Fundraiser

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 last year. 

After Hurricane Ida destroyed three of our boats, and flooded our boathouse last Fall, we were not sure what the year would hold. However, we stuck together and worked harder on our performance. This fall we had great results at the Head of the Charles in Boston MA, won 3 medals at the Head of the Fish in Saratoga NY and most recently were the #1 team at the Frostbite Regatta in Princeton NJ. We are confident that we will make New Jersey shine in rowing at the national level, but we need your help!

We have committed to raise $500 per athlete so we can replace the three boats we lost. For every $1 raised,  athletes will row 10 meters on March 5th with their teammates. If we hit our team target goal, we would have rowed 125 miles from NYC all the way to the Schuylkill River in Philadelphia, where the first rowing race in the United States was held in 1762. 
 
Any donation amount is welcome and appreciated. Please join us in taking our team to the top! 

Thank you for your support!
 
Sincerely,
Zach Spitzer
Nereid Boat Club Director
