Lorelei Carter's Fundraiser
$300 towards $500
Dear Family and Friends,
As you may know I am rower for Vero Beach Rowing (VBR), an amazing community nonprofit rowing club comprised of approximately 60 student-athletes/members. I love rowing! It is an amazing, challenging sport that requires huge dedication and commitment. And it has really helped me find who I am and how to use my voice! The rowing team is not just a team it is my family. I have made so many great friends through your the four years I have been rowing here.
Each fall our team organizes an “ergathon” to raise funds for our “Learn to Row” camps for youth athletes, many of whom couldn’t attend without the funds raised during this event. And with the funds we can get more kids from out community to come row!
An ergathon is a classic crew fundraising event where athletes row a specified time on rowing machines (ergs) showing their passion and commitment to their sport and boathouse and hopefully earning the right to ask for your donation!
My team will be rowing 26.2 miles (42,165 meters) to raise money for these youth athletes.
How can you help? Sponsor me! I need family, friends and the Vero Beach community to support me for the upcoming ergathon, which will take place December 17th. I would greatly appreciate any dollar amount that you can contribute to this VERY worthy cause. Donating is easy!
My personal goal is to raise a minimum of $500, and every dollar counts! Our goal is to fund scholarships to help make our club more accessible to all athletes. Any additional funds raised will be to support operating costs for the 2021-22 crew season.
Thank you in advance for any help that you can provide. I GREATLY appreciate your support!!
I also invite you to attend the VBR 2022 Ergathon on December 19th from 8:00am till noon to watch me and my team row hard for this great cause and check out the incredible community we are building. It will be a great experience!
With many thanks,
