Vero Beach Erg-O-Thon

Help our club support a fast growing team!


$0 towards $500

Since I began rowing in 2019, the team has grown so much! Every year, rowing becomes a more known sport and many new rowers join every season! Rowing has given me a chance to be apart of a team and challenge myself every day! And it’s fun for all ages!

Dear Family and Friends,
As you may know, I am a rower for Vero Beach Rowing (VBR), an amazing community nonprofit rowing club comprised of approximately 85 student-athletes/members. I love rowing! It is an amazing, challenging sport that requires huge dedication and commitment.

Each fall our team organizes an “Erg-A-Thon” to raise funds. An Erg-A-Thon 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 youth athletes.

How can you help? Sponsor me! I need family, friends and the Vero Beach community to support me for the upcoming Erg-A-Thon, which will take place November 11th. I would greatly appreciate any dollar amount that you can contribute to this VERY worthy cause.

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 help purchase safe equipment and support operating costs for the 2023-24 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 2023 Erg-A-Thon on November 11th from 8:00am - 12pm. Come out and watch me and my team row hard for this great cause. Also, take an opportunity to check out the incredible community we are building.

Many Thanks!
