2018 Illini Ergathon

This past weekend, starting at noon on 1/19 and ending just before 11:00 am on 1/22 the team completed a personal challenge and fundraiser to row one million meters in 72 hours. It took us 70 hours and 54 minutes to complete the challenge. During the almost three full days of rowing, at least two people were on an erg in front of the Student Union at all times. It was cold and wet but we are proud to have made it through. The team had many donors supporting our progress. From this, we were able to raise over $5,000 to help buy a new trailer and fund regattas for the Spring 2018 racing season. Thank you to everyone who donated and supported us this weekend. We are still short on money for our new trailer any help would be appreciated. If interested visit: https://illinoisrowingassociation.givingfuel.com/new-shell-trailer.
