Hi!! Olalla here, I have been a part of City Island Rowing for three years. My teammates have become my family and the dock and gym to which we row and workout in have become my home. All the funds from this fundraiser each year have helped cultivate this community for me and every girl on the team as they single handedly subsidise the equipment and facilities we use. We have and are continually working so hard. We are so excited to show you all how fast we are this spring. It would mean the world to me if you could donate and help continue to make our team even stronger.
Hello, and THANK YOU for your support, it means the world to me - and my teammates! Rowing has had a profound impact on my life... the lessons that hard work, teamwork, discipline, and sacrifice are the surest paths to success are engrained in us daily... and of course, my team, City Island Rowing, is very much like an extension of my family. To help you understand why we love this sport and our team so much, please enjoy this video by 20/21 Team captain, Sydney Tuck.
On Sunday March 5th we will hold our annual capital equipment fundraiser, to pay for all the equipment that we use... which in our sport 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
The innovative and groundbreaking Hudson USP series racing shells are 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.
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!
