NCR will be holding its annual fundraiser: THE NORTHAMPTON COMMUNITY ROWING ERGATHON on the lawn of the Hampshire Council of Gov’t building on April 16, 2016 from 9am - 3pm.
Our members are currently busy collecting pledges and donations for rowing for a specific amount of time on ergometers (rowing machines or “ergs”). Throughout the day on April 16th, our rowers will be fulfilling their pledges on the rowing machines while our coaches, captains and board members answer questions about the event, our organization and opportunities to learn to row or join a rowing team to anyone interested.
This year, pledging is easy!!
This year's Ergathon is part of Valley Gives - so all of the donations and pledges that are raised will be matched by the Thomas Lyons Boat Fund. This allows us to receive pledges and donations online - meaning that our members will be using Facebook, twitter and/or their own website to advertise their participation. They will also be able to accept the old-fashioned checks and cash donations either before or at the event.
The participants of The Ergathon have been assigned to one of two teams: TEAM BLUE or TEAM GOLD. All team members will be rowing for 20 minutes each. Awards will be given for the individual from each team who raises the most money, the team which raises the most money and the team which rows the most meters. Follow the links above to see the rosters and to support your favorite team!
