Supporting the Rowers
The goal for this year's event is to raise $15,000 for this life-saving program. All rowers are asked to make a minimum $100 donation in lieu of an entrance fee. In addition, we enourage rowers to collect additional donations from friends and family, and we welcome support from the community. There are several ways to make a donation and we provide tools for collecting gifts from friends, family, and co-workers. Please click here to make a donation today.
Last Year's ERG Marathon
The 7th annual NWH ERG Marathon in 2012 was held on a scorching Marathon Monday outside the Hospital along Washington Street. It was the largest group ever - with 105 rowers rowing on 39 stationary rowing machines. That's a total of 1.5 million meters or, in terms of energy generated, about 24 KWH of power! The event raised $10,000 to benefit the Breast Cancer High Risk Assessment Program. For 2013 photos, please visit www.facebook.com/ergmarathon.
