It's that time of year again for the Rockland Rowing Association's 11th annual "Pull with Purpose" Row-A-Thon . This year the event is being held on Saturday March 18 th  from 8:30 am - 11:30 in the Adler Room of the Palisades Center in West Nyack and they can use your support, financially or as rowers.


Rockland Rowing is a community-oriented organization focused on improving people's lives through rowing. The recent name change, from River Rowing to Rockland Rowing has helped better define where they row, but their mission remains unchanged. The programming includes adaptive rowing for those with physical and mental disabilities; recreational rowing for youth and adults; and nationally ranked competitive teams for youth, college athletes, and adult rowers. Many of the high school student-athletes are recruited to row in college - often receiving partial and sometimes full scholarships. They receive no funding from the school districts and never turn away athletes based on their ability to pay.

 Their goal this year is to raise $30,000 to purchase much needed equipment for their growing youth rowing team and to provide need-based grants to those who may be unable to cover the cost of our programs. You can help by either joining the row-a-thon, or simply by sponsoring their efforts. They are excited to announce that Crestron Electronics has again committed to matching up to $15,000 of the donations they receive! So any donation doubles.
  

If you love to row, or know someone who does, and want to participate in the program, or want to make a donation,  you can go to their website at www.rocklandrowing.org for  more information,

If you'd like to join them in the Row-A-Thon  you can sign up with some friends, or join an existing team. It's a truly fun experience, packed with high energy and enthusiasm by all.

So check out their website for more details  and good luck to all the rowers!
