We’re celebrating! … Celebrating 10 years of staying true to our mission of helping our area youth reach their full potential through the sport of rowing. We are proud to say that our participant enrollment over 10 years has exceeded 500 teens from our community and the surrounding counties. Many of our crew members needed an athletic outlet that would give them a chance to get outdoors beyond the ballfields and crowds. In Freedom Rowers they found what they were looking for; an inclusive sport that accommodates varying abilities. We tell our kids, “You may be sitting down, but there’s no bench, we’re all in this boat together” – literally!
In 10 years we’ve watched our team members grow into confident young men and women who carry forward the discipline, dedication and focus they develop with us as Freedom Rowers. We hear first-hand from parents how rowing has changed their child’s life as well as opened up doors of collegiate opportunities. We want ensure the continued success of our organization with the generous support from contributors like you.
The fall of 2016 marked our 10th year of operation and our 20th season of competitive rowing in the Mid-Atlantic area! Freedom Rowers is a 501(c)3 non-profit which is not affiliated with either the school system or county run sports programs. We operate through the generous support of donors, community grants and program fees. Our operating expenses such as fleet maintenance, regatta fees, chase boats, travel expenses, uniforms, and insurance for both the boats and crew members, greatly exceeds the income from program fees.
FREEDOM ROWERS IS ASKING FOR YOUR HELP. We value our donors and the important impact you have on expanding our program experience for all interested teens. As a non-profit, we understand that every dollar counts, and we will make the most of your donation to help our rowers be successful. So please, become a part of our story, help us to grow and celebrate. Here’s to the next 10 years! Thank you.
