GAR Erg-A-Thon

GAR is rowing from Newnans Lake to Lake Lanier, the 1996 Olympic site. In other words, it’ll be 600,000 meters and we’ll be attempting to do it across 3 ergs in 15 hours. Middle school, high school, masters and coaches will all be contributing to the mileage! The event will be held at Cypress Grove (1001 NW 4th St, Gainesville, FL) on December 4th, 7am-10pm. Can we complete our goal? Please help motivate our rowers by donating generously. Proceeds help support our rowing programs that are desperately in need of funds as we’re still suffering from fundraising cancellations due to Covid-19.
