feild trip to Fenway Park

Raising money to send high school rowers on a winter training trip to Sarasota, Florida.

This august I started coaching for Row Boston, a competitive rowing team for students in the Boston Public Schools.

I'm excited to coach for Row Boston because we are working to make rowing available to a diverse group of students. We recruit from schools where over half of the students live below the poverty line, and we try to remove any obstacles that prevent students from rowing. We provide transportation, equipment, uniforms, swim lessons -- whatever someone needs -- to get them on the water. Rowing can be such positive, formative experience for young people, and we want to make that opportunity available to everyone.

Row Boston also has academic sessions once week, where the students have a chance to wok one-on-one with tutors. The real goal is to people on track to college -- and 98% of our rowers are graudating high school and attending college.

This February we will be taking our rowers on a training trip to Sarasota Florida. It seems like a crazy idea, but for most of the rowing community a winter training trip is a rite of passge -- not a special occasion or a pie in the sky dream -- but just another perk of being on the team. So why should it be different for these kids?

I know that loved the trips that Cornell took to Cocoa Beach every January -- whether is was seat racing on the water, watching sports center in the Comfort Inn, or the team trip to All You Can Eat Rib Night, -- i had some of my best memories on those trips.

So if you enjoyed your winter training trip as much as I did, consider making a donation, and make it possible for a new group of rowers to do the same.
