Capital City Rowing's
The "Ergathon" is Capital City Rowing's annual fundraiser. All athletes solicit pledges from family, friends, local businesses, etc., and then "erg" in shifts. An “erg” is short for ergometer, the rowing machine we use for training and fitness.
Rowing is one of the most expensive of all high school sports. Boats can cost as much or more than a car . We also hire our own coaches and use funds to pay for oars, riggers, cox boxes, speaker systems, a trailer for the boats, a truck to haul the boats to regattas, and workout equipment.
Although we are a public team, we receive almost no public funding. To pay for all of this, the team relies heavily on its members and donors for financial support, holding fundraisers and soliciting donations to maintain its program. Despite any barriers we may have, our team has been able to be very competitive on the water.
Funds raised are used for equipment purchases and maintenance, as well as our financial aid program to ensure that participating in crew is affordable for all CCR families. 100% of the donated funds go to the team.
We greatly appreciate every donation!
