BHRA is a non-profit, tax exempt organization that provides year-round rowing opportunities to students and adults in the local community. We rely on fundraising to help sustain our club’s activities as well as increase opportunities for our rowers to row in better equipment and improve their skills. We appreciate any and all support.
BHRA Fundraising Events
- September Marathon Row: This is a huge event for our club. The athletes participate in this full day of rowing to contribute to the financial support of the team. The middle school athletes will row in the morning and afternoon, with a break for lunch at the BHRA boathouse. The high school athletes will row for 26.2 miles (!) on the Mohawk River and pass through 5 canal locks over the course of their journey. We are very proud of our athletes’ efforts on Marathon Row Day!
- December Auction: Box raffle and live auction event.
