We want YOU on the U.S. Olympic Team

by National Rowing Foundation | Dec 01, 2015
The starting line in Rio awaits us. With your help, so will the podium. And remember, America doesn’t send its athletes to the Olympic Games, Americans do.
We want you-01 (5)
With the Olympic Games only nine months away, we, your U.S. national team athletes, ask everyone in the U.S. rowing community to come and join our Olympic rowing team. Our dream is to represent you on the Olympic podium in Rio. But to be fully competitive with the government-funded programs of the Brits, Germans, Kiwis, and most every other major rowing power, we need you on our team. By helping to fund our winter training at Chula Vista; our preparation for the Olympic team selection in the spring and the final Olympic qualification regatta this coming May, you can help us to secure those elusive few seconds that will make a U.S. medal more than possible but probable.

Each year USRowing requests a grant from the National Rowing Foundation to support the preparation, selection and the participation of the Senior/Olympic team in international competition. In 2015, that figure is $1,200,000. These funds support the coaching, equipment, travel, technology and athlete physical and financial support that are fundamental to our ability to compete. Every dollar of the grant comes from individuals like you. With 2015 rapidly coming to a close, we are counting on your year-end generosity to ensure that the NRF can fulfill its obligation to USRowing and to us its Olympic bound athletes.

The starting line in Rio awaits us. With your help, so will the podium. And remember, America doesn’t send its athletes to the Olympic Games, Americans do.

Please make a generous donation online HERE or send a check made out to the NRF to 67 Mystic Road, North Stonington, CT 06359.

Sincerely,

Your Rio-bound U.S. Rowing Team
