GW Rows For Humanity
Both Rowing Teams Will Spend February 2nd Working at Habitat For Humanity
Jan. 25, 2007
WASHINGTON, DC - The Fourth Annual Row For Humanity took place yesterday with the George Washington University rowing teams rowing over 1.5 million meters in three locations on campus to raise money for the programs and for DC Habitat for Humanity. There were indoor rowing machines at Ivory Tower, Funger Hall and Kogen Plaza from 7:00 am to 6:00 pm. The oarsmen on the men's team each rowed at least 30,000 meters (18.5 miles) each - and the women each spent at least an hour on the erg. The GW rowing team has raised $10,000 so far and is proud to present a donation to the DC Chapter of Habitat for Humanity.
George Washington Rowing joined other universities and high schools around the country on January 24th to help their local chapters of Habitat for Humanity generate enough money to continue building homes for their communities. Last year, the charity event raised over $30,000 across the nation.
The men's and women's team will spend Friday, February 2nd working at a Habitat for Humanity construction site in Northeast Washington, DC.
Donations are still being accepted and can be sent to GW Row For Humanity, 600 22nd Street, NW, Washington, DC 20052. Make checks payable to: GW Row for Humanity.
