This past Saturday WYRA rowers participated in WYRA’s annual Ergathon fundraiser. 8 enthusiastic teams competed against each other in an hour long relay where the goal was to row as many meters as possible. Overall, WYRA rowed a total 116, 523 meters in one hour! Parents joined to cheer on the rowers and energy was high as the teams encouraged each other throughout the entire Ergathon and showed their WYRA pride. The winning team of Devante Nichols, Kathleen Scopis, Rory Gold, and Ethan Yao rowed 15181 meters. Maybe we will include an all parent team in the event next year! Congratulations to all WYRA rowers for completing a very successful Ergathon, we are proud of you.
Remember, donations are due on April 11th. Make sure your athlete is helping the team reach our goal of $15,000. The Ergathon letter and sponsorship form are posted here in case you need more copies. There is a prize of a WYRA customized iPod for the highest grossing athlete!
