What is Annapolis Junior Rowing About?
Quite simply, rowing changes lives. Annapolis Junior Rowing (AJR) has changed lives!
AJR’s youth rowing program benefits the Greater Annapolis community by providing the only access to the sport of rowing in the Anne Arundel County area. Our rowers come to embrace the mental toughness and teamwork developed on the water and take that with them through high school, college and their adult life.
Why a Capital Campaign?
You can make a difference!
The cost of maintaining and replacing our main equipment such as racing shells, cox boxes and oars increases each year. Our registration fees do not cover these capital expenditures.
Beginning in 2016 and over the next 3 years, our goal is to raise $50,000 to provide competitive level racing shells and daily operating equipment.
This is where you can make a difference. AJR offers a flexible giving program that welcomes a myriad of personalized donations in the form of commemorative naming opportunities and charitable donations. We encourage you to give in a way that will support your charitable goals as well as the AJR rowing program. We ask you show your support in the program that has meant so much to you, our athletes and our community. Your contributions will only be used to support AJR’s current and future capital equipment requirements.
Why Should you participate?
