Please support the River City Junior Crew Row-A-Thon.
Thank you for supporting the River City Junior Crew! At River City, we run a first-class rowing program. Since we are a non-profit community club we don't get any money from schools, so most of the money that it takes to fund the team comes from the student-athletes that make up the Junior Crew. This fundraiser helps keep our dues as affordable as possible so that more kids can be a part of our team, and it affects every aspect of our team: our training, coaches, equipment, entry fees and ultimately our ability to race our best at competitions. The money the team earns will help our team stay strong and cover our many necessary expenses for the spring season.
We want to give our student-athletes the best opportunity to succeed and create as many new memories as possible. The Junior Crew program is asking for your assistance to help make this possible. Any donation is greatly appreciated and a tax-deductible receipt will be issued for your support.
A message from Coach Arthur Ericsson...
As a team, we have a great passion for what we do and we are surrounded by great people within the River City Family. The crew has a proud tradition of success for our student-athletes. Last year we had three crews qualify and compete at the Youth National Championships. But our main success is the difference we make in every kid's life.
On the weekend of Dec. 1 & 2 each member of our team will be rowing for four hours at two different locations in the Sacramento area. That's a long time to sit and row but we want to earn your support to help our team do what we do and keep moving forward. Rowing is very meaningful to each of us and helps us overcome challenges, learn to be better teammates and grow as individuals in many ways which will serve us well the rest of our lives.
The goals we hope to accomplish as rowers, coaches, and a program takes vision, commitment, and resources. The large majority of our program’s funding continues to be generated from the rowers, their parents, and the support and generosity within the River City community. This supporting cast is a critical part of the success of our program. Along with my staff, I would like to personally thank everyone for supporting our program and invite each of you to come cheer us on at one of our regattas.
Thank you for supporting the River City Junior Crew Row-A-Thon!
