Molly Croft


Raised of $6,500


Hello everyone! Thank you so much for visiting my fundraising page. It's once again time for City Island Rowing's annual Ergathon! I have advanced very far in my rowing journey. I've gone from total newbie to New York State Champion, to national competitor to Varsity athlete! I am so glad that I am part of this spectacular team. This sport has already made me more disciplined and dedicated than I ever could have imagined, waking up at 4:30 is not an easy task. This sport has shown me the power of a team, of 8 girls pushing simultaneously, each wanting it more than the next. That's why having new equipment can improve our team and our courage to face the next challenge.

This leads me to the main purpose of the fundraiser. My team has just purchased an innovative and groundbreaking Hudson USP 8+ racing shells made in Canada and are quickly replacing Empachers at the fastest women's collegiate programs across the country. The "USP" (Ultra Super Predator) marque is Hudson's Flagship model, in their premium "Shark" line-up. A more detailed description of the shell we have ordered can be found on our website. All of the equipment we are currently using has been purchased through this fundraiser. These donations, and in turn equipment, will help not only the current team members but generations of CIR rowers to come. Thank you to everyone who considers donating to this wonderful team!

In order to even be deserving of donations, I will be erging (using the rowing machine) for 90 impossibly long minutes. I hope that my "sweat equity" makes any and all donations worthwhile. 
This video, made by the amazing alum Sydney Tuck, expresses more than I can describe in words how much this sport means to me:
