First, and foremost, thank you. Your love for the sport of rowing, for our program and for those that make up our program is the reason we not only reached our $25k goal, but exceeded it with three days remaining in the campaign. To date, we have raised $26,475 and that inspiring number is all because of you.
In all, 139 donations came through our crowd funding site, which shows that, like rowing, this was definitely a team effort. Gifts came from former rowers, family members of current and former rowers, and friends of the program as well as those who may not be directly affiliated with our program but know someone who is or was at some point in their lives.
The success of this campaign, coupled with the generous match gift, will make our goal of purchasing the top-of-line Hypercarbon Comp women’s racing eight a reality, and also allows us to honor Judy Kitzman in a way that she most definitely deserves.
We will communicate to you details regarding the Orange & Black Regatta in November so you can witness the unveiling of the boat that will bear Judy’s name.
Thank you again for all that you do for Oregon State Women’s Rowing and Go Beavs!
