Wolverines! Help Support Rowers for Change!


Hi friends, family, and fans of Michigan Rowing!

 

Rowers For Change 2021 is an opportunity for all of us to get involved and to bring about the change we wish to see in rowing. This initiative is hosted by STEM to Stern, a non-profit whose mission is to break down barriers of access that students from underserved communities face when rowing. By working with youth clubs to provide transportation, swimming lessons, and STEM education, they make sure kids are successful on and off the water.

 

This is so important to us as Michigan Rowing because we know how much the sport of rowing has enriched every area of our lives, and we want more students to be able to experience it! Our sport is more than just physical training and competition; we grow as people, learn to lead, and gain so many more life skills. Additionally, our team understands how much inclusivity and diversity add important value to our team and our sport.

 

Our team is especially invested in this program because a large portion of the funds from the entire fundraiser will go directly to Washtenaw Rowing Club, a youth club right in our county! WRC has been able to provide many opportunities for local youth and will be able to expand their program to include even more students with the funds we raise through STEM to Stern. Funds raised go to STEM to Stern programs like WRC across the country and the athletes who are participating in their programs. This includes essentials like transportation, snacks and adequate fueling for education and exercise, and providing fun new experiences!

 

Through their proven model that has changed lives since 2016, STEM to Stern has opened doors to competitive rowing, Olympic Development Camp, Youth Nationals, and much more. This is a cause near and dear to our hearts, and we’re so excited to work with STEM to Stern to change the face of our beloved sport of rowing!

Thank you to our Sponsors

We are so proud of you for thinking about kids who may not be able to row due to financial disadvantage. Hope your fundraising is enabling more kids to participate this great sport.
