Valley Gives Campaign underway

On April 16, Northampton Community Rowing kicked off our 2016 Valley Gives campaign with our Annual Ergathon. Two teams: “TEAM BLUE” and “TEAM GOLD” erged (rowed on rowing machines) on the Northampton Courthouse lawn. Collectively we rowed 305,927 meters and earned over $11,200 towards the purchase of new equipment, including a new 8-person shell. bannercrop

The Ergathon was the first part of Northampton Community Rowing's 2016 Valley Gives Campaign to raise money for new equipment.  All funds will be matched by the friends and family of Thomas Lyons.  Valley Gives Day is May 3, and everyone at NCR is committed to maintaining the momentum created by the Ergathon to help promote their Valley Gives drive and hit the overall goal of $16,000 for the combined Ergathon/Valley Gives campaign!

The Hampshire Gazette ran two articles on the Ergathon HERE and  HERE along with an accompanying video.
