Please help support G-ROW's February training trip to Austin, TX!

Hi everyone!

Thank you for supporting G-ROW's February vacation training trip! As most of you know, I am the Varsity Coach and Program Director for G-ROW Boston, and I'm pretty sure this is the greatest job ever . Not only do I get to coach girls in the Boston Public Schools--teaching them how to row and move a boat FAST, but I also get to coordinate tutoring and help them with any academic needs they may have.

Each year, the girls travel to warmer places for a spring training trip over February vacation. This is a highlight of the year for the girls and coaches alike; it is a great opportunity for them to bond as a team, see a new place, and get in a LOT of water time after a long winter inside. This year we are going to Texas to row in Austin! We have a chance to row at a club there and see the university, local sights, museums, and a whole new state. We can't wait!

Each of the girls has committed to raising funds all winter long, and as their coach, I never ask them to do something I can't do. I will be raising money this season as well, with all of our efforts leading up to our 7th Annual Ergathon , taking place on January 29th at the Prudential Center in Boston. Each girl on the team will row roughly 5000 meters on rowing machines, contributing to a team goal of 150,000 meters. Your donations will make a big difference in the lives of these girls by providing them with a wonderful opportunity to grow as a team and see Texas.

Thank you so much for your support!
