Katie Korb


Raised of $1,000


Hello everyone! My name is Katie Korb and I am a junior at City Island Rowing. This is my third annual ergathon and I could not be happier with the results we have had in the past. Now that I have been on the time for a little while, I understand how important the ergathon is. It will not only help me personally, but the growth of the club. I am so lucky to have had former athletes work hard in this fundraiser once before. They are the reason I am able to row in amazing boats, have a perfect trailer, and great oars! So, I want to make sure I am paying it forward as well. It would mean so much if you donated because all of the money goes directly to us and making sure we have the best equipment.

And on Sunday March 5th, we will hold our annual capital equipment fundraiser, to pay for all the equipment that we use! This is very important because our equipment is typically made of hand-laid carbon fiber and is very expensive. This year is an especially important fundraiser as proceeds will fund the purchase of the most stunning racing shell specifically designed for high school girls, available in the world ~ Hudson USP 8.12. This boat will help us become much faster and do very well in races. There is no question that this stunning shell, made possible by your generous support, will help us achieve our goals this coming Spring Championship season, and for a decade to come!

Each athlete who raises at least $1000 earns the right to have their name featured prominently in our gorgeous new racing shell... the top 8 fundraisers will have their names right on the seats! With your help, I can be one of those girls!!

My teammates and I will be investing our sweat equity! On Sunday we will complete a grueling 90-minute endurance piece on the indoor rowing machine ("the erg"). It will be mentally and physically exhausting, but it's for such a great cause, and I will have all of my supporters in mind to keep me motivated.

Thank you again for your support... especially if you have supported me before!
