Row for Ukraine

The attack on Ukraine has been incomprehensible. Watching this devastation and tragedy unfold has left us wanting to do something. Sometimes all it takes to understand is for someone in your immediate environment to be directly affected by these attacks. For us at Rowing Canada it’s one of our coaches. Our coach Maksym, born and raised in Ukraine has numerous friends and family currently being affected.

Rowing Canada athletes and athletes around the world have come together to start a fundraiser to raise money for The Canadian Red Cross Society in support of our coach and the people of Ukraine. We are prepared to row the number of meters we raise per dollar ($1=1m). Our plan is to raise funds until March 12th at which point we will row our fundraised distance.

Please donate and show your support for our coach and the people of Ukraine.

The Canadian Red Cross helps people and communities around the world in times of need and supports them in strengthening their resilience and providing relief. The Canadian Red Cross provides support to places and people of the highest need, and the Ukraine is their top priority right now.
