Each year, the Purdue Rowing Team sponsors “Row-A-Thon” in support of the LUM Good Samaritan Fund. Row-A-Thon is an all-day event, where the co-ed team members row a marathon of 20,000 meters in three hours on indoor rowing machines while raising funds for LUM. Purdue Crew president, Kelsey D’Amico shared that,
“Row-A-Thon is a long-standing tradition of Purdue Crew, and a fundraiser we are once again extremely excited and proud to be able to run for those in need, especially amid the COVID-19 pandemic. It is a great way for our athletes to put in hard work toward their training while helping the community in a genuinely impactful way!”
