ERGATHON TO WINNIPEG!
The Rowing P.E.I. training team is putting their fundraising campaign into action in in January 2016. The team – with help from a special guest captain – will be rowing the distance from Charlottetown to Winnipeg, host city for the 2017 Canada Games.
The $3400 will go towards purchasing the race boats that these young athletes need to train for the Games in 2017. Time is of the essence because they need the boats by May to start training.
You can follow the team’s progress here:
Here is a news release about our fundraising campaign:
The Canada Games training team is happening! They had the first workout session at Holland College with head coach Mike Gibson on Saturday November 7th. Because these athletes are also involved in other sports, the group will aim to get together once a week over the winter —to work on erging and getting to know each other. Here is a look at workout #1.
