Purdue Crew’s Rowing Spectacle

Another Successful Row-A-Thon This Past Saturday

This past Saturday, the Purdue Rowing Team held their annual “Row-A-Thon” event. Each member of the co-ed team rowed at least 30K (30,000 meters or 18.64 miles) in three hours on indoor rowing machines while raising funds for the LUM Good Samaritan Fund.

If you missed Row-A-Thon, you may still donate ONLINE (add “Rowathon” in the additional comments section) or by mail (make checks payable to Purdue Crew Club and mail your checks to: Purdue Crew—Row-A-Thon, 355 N. Martin Jischke Dr., West Lafayette, IN 47907).

Thanks to Purdue Crew president, Patrick King; head coach, Nathan Walker; and the entire rowing team and coaching staff for their continued support of Lafayette Urban Ministry.  Please note: the funds raised from Row-a-thon will be split 50/50 between LUM and Purdue Crew Team.
