We are raising funds to build a great fleet for High Point Rowing Club!
To kick off fundraising the Crew will host its annual Ergathon on March 4, 2017 in our erg room at 124C Wade Street in Jamestown by rowing 100 kilometers indoors. The purpose of the Ergathon is to raise funds to upgrade the Club’s fleet of boats and equipment. We ask all our rowers, Masters and youth, to vigorously seek financial support from friends, neighbors and family. We hope you will support them!
Last year the Ergathon raised over $17,000 and allowed the team to purchase a new coxed four shell and install new boat racks at Oak Hollow Lake. Individual rowers who raise over $200 from family and friends will be recognized with an exclusive article of club apparel. Families who contribute over $125 will see their name proudly displayed on the team banner in the erg room and on race day at regattas.
Families or businesses that donate $500 or more will also be recognized with their name on one of our team ergs for the year.
Businesses that donate $1,000 will be named event sponsors at 2017 club hosted major events. A business that donates $5,000 or more will be named the Club Corporate Patron and primary sponsor of the High Point Regatta.
Donation/Ergathon forms will be handed out to rowers this week.
