Today kicks off Ignite, our largest fundraiser of the year. Ignite is the greatest source of funds for the team. UConn Men’s Crew has grown extensively over the past few years – with the team at its largest and fastest, we require new equipment to allow us to grow and remain competitive against other programs.
The donations we received in 2017 allowed the team to purchase the Lara – a racing shell from Cornell University. The funds we gather this year will go to purchase yet another racing shell, in order to accommodate for our rapidly growing team. Additional funds will be used for boathouse maintenance and equipment. In order to show our appreciation for any donations, members of the team will be combining at the end of Ignite to row 1 meter for every 1 dollar raised.
Help us reach our goal of $20,000! Here is the link to donate:
