The Junior teams have been busy already this fall. Our Novice and Varsity have been practicing and our Beginner class just began with a record number of new rowers!
The Honey Crisp apple fundraiser was a huge success! Our parent boosters bagged over a ton of Honey Crisp apples! Well done, team.
Don't forget to sign up for the Blood Drive. The Grand Rapids Rowing Association has partnered with Michigan Blood to host a blood drive at the boathouse. Join us for this very important ‘GRRA Gives Back’ event on Saturday, October 1, from 9:30am-2:00pm. A mobile donation bus will be set up in the boathouse parking lot.
Please visit our event page to schedule your donation time.
The blood drive is open to all rowers (age 16 and older), coaches, families and friends as well as the public. Please spread the word!
Junior rowers who would like to donate, aged 16 years and older, should schedule their donation time after practice between noon - 2:00pm.
Michigan Blood provides 600 units (pints) of blood each day to area hospitals. Blood donations help burn victims, people suffering from trauma and shock, cancer treatment patients, maternity wards, people with blood disorders and organ transplant recipients, just to name a few. Please consider donating.
Their next regatta will be Saturday, October 8, in Lansing.
