Boone Crew provides a critical outlet to youth in our community, helping them develop the confidence, endurance, discipline, and teamwork necessary to become healthy, responsible, productive citizens.
For every athlete that joins crew, we must make sure there are enough rowing machines for them to learn on, coaches to teach them, and actual boats for them to row in. Unlike other sports, crew does not receive financial support from the district or state. While the families of each athlete pay membership fees to be part of the team, this income only covers very basic operating expenses such as electricity, insurance, and coaching salaries. The team must work very hard to raise additional funds for boats, equipment, and regatta fees in order to remain competitive.
In an effort to sustain the program, Braves Rowing Inc. is seeking donations and sponsorships. In exchange for your support, BRI will be honored to recognize and promote your business name and logo in digital and print media and/or on equipment. On behalf of current and future rowers, we thank you in advance for any support you have to offer. Together, we can change lives and make a real difference to student-athletes seeking a healthy, higher quality of life.
Donations by check/money order may be made payable to Braves Rowing Inc. and mailed to:

The Boone High School Crew team is on a tear. On Saturday April 8, from 8:30am to 12 noon they are hosting a community event and fundraiser at beautiful Lake Cherokee Park in downtown Orlando. The team will aim to raise $25k and break its own distance records on rowing machines called Ergs, and row for 250,000 meters during their annual Ergathon.
An Erg-A-Thon is an endurance event in which rowers reach out to local businesses and residences to pledge their financial support if the team can row a record distance. Typically, erg-a-thons collectively row 100,000 meters or 100k. On April 8, Boone's rowers will test their limits and go for 250k in rapid fire bursts of rowing prowess.
Come out and support our Boone Rowers as they give it their all.
