As you get ready for the holiday, please consider supporting Wilson Crew with the purchase of a wreath, Hanukah bundle, and/or poinsettia. All items are $30 with 50% going straight to the team to fund scholarships and general operations. Even better – we bring the items to you so there is no need to leave the house! We’ll be delivering the Sunday after Thanksgiving.
Why support Wilson Crew?
“My daughter absolutely loved the camaraderie, activity, and natural beauty on the water. It was a bright spot for all of us these past few months. Crew has been extremely therapeutic both physically and psychologically for (her) during the pandemic.”
When our spring was cut short by covid, the coaches quickly jumped into action to save the fall season. The team reconstituted as a small boat rowing program independent of DCPS which was unable to offer fall sports. We rented 18 “small boats” (singles, doubles, and pairs) so our athletes could continue rowing following USRowing and DC government guidelines. The team also taught 30 new freshman boys and girls how to row! This was made possible by the athletes and families – as well as the broader DC Community that has been so generous over our 35 year history.
We hope you will purchase again in order to guarantee we can offer a spring program as well. When you purchase online, select any rower you know or designate “Scholarship” to support our scholarship fund. Our mission is to ensure that any student that wants to run is able to, regardless of ability to pay.
Thanks for your continued support!
This is a great program that I am happy to help and donate to.
