NRRA Youth and Masters Rowing Teams, and all supporters of
Norwalk River Rowing
WE NEED YOUR HELP!
The 16th Annual Matthew Zucker Memorial Ergathon is just a few weeks away!
The Matthew Zucker Memorial Fund was established by Matthew’s parents, Barbara and Mark, in memory of their son, Matthew, an avid rower and NRRA athlete, who lost his battle with brain cancer just before his high school graduation in 1998. The fund enables NRRA to fulfill its mission of providing scholarships and equipment to young people who otherwise could not afford to row or to discover the same self-confidence, self-discipline, and love of rowing that Matthew did.
How can you help? We need 100% participation from our NRRA members. Each athlete is asked to register on line by October 29th. The registration fee is $35. Then we need you to reach out to your family, friends, neighbors, co-workers, etc, and ask them for pledges and/or donations to support you erging for 10 kilometers. It’s like a marathon, only your erging! Directions on how to register and donate are below.
Our Goal is for each Athlete to raise $250!
What is in it for me? Other than the good vibes that come from helping others and a good workout, each participant will receive a commemorative T-Shirt. Since NRRA is a 501(c)(3) organization, your participation also counts as a valuable community service. For additional incentive, we are offering an iPad Mini to the athletes with the highest amount of donations raised, and prizes for the athletes that reach our goal donation amount, best erg time in your group, a parent out-erging an athlete or a spouse out-erging a Master Rower, and many more. There will be music, free food, and fun stuff to purchase but, most importantly, you will be helping a fellow NRRA athlete and helping NRRA purchase much needed equipment!
So remember Nov. 1st at the Wilton High School from 8am to 1pm
