Announcements and Important Events
The crew team will be holding a fundraiser for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society on March 3. They are currently seeking sponsors. Please consider helping out with this worthwhile effort.
What is it?
Yorktown Crew will raise funds for their team and the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society by participating in an Ergathon – a rowing competition on ergometers, or indoor rowing machines. Rowers will set challenging goals and erg together to raise money to fight blood cancers. This year the team is dedicating the Ergathon to Yorktown rower Henry Burneson who lost his life to Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia.

The Crew for a Cure Ergathon will be held on Saturday, March 3rd 2018 from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm in the Yorktown High School Atrium, 5200 Yorktown Blvd Arlington, VA
What is in it for Sponsors?
Recognition on Ergathon T-Shirts! If requested, corporate logos will appear on the official Ergathon t-shirt for donors of $100 or more. These t-shirts will be worn by the 100+ crew members during the event, to regattas and for many years to come.
Links to corporate sponsor’s websites from the YHS Crew website – YHS rowing families regularly visit this website – along with friends and extended family members.
Corporate Sponsors will receive a T-Shirt and a thank you certificate showing their support.
Tax benefits for donations. A letter will be sent to Corporate Sponsors with tax information. A portion (10%) of the donation will go to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and the remainder to the non-profit Yorktown Crew Boosters
What will it cost?
