2017 - This past year we held the rowathon during the Heritage Festival in downtown Northville, September 15-17.  The rowathon not only helps to raise money for our team, but also to raise awareness within our community that the sport of rowing is a great option for Northville High School students. This venue gave us a lot more visibility and the opportunity to raise additional funds and it was a great success. We will definitely be back next year!

A very big thank you goes out to our generous sponsors and individual donors!

2016 - For the past few years, Rowers collected pledges from family, friends and community members – just like you see for a bowl-a-thon or walk-a-thon. In addition, each rower chose several Northville businesses to approach for sponsorship of the event. As rowing is a club activity rather than a school sponsored sport, NRC relies on the financial support of its members and the community. To raise funds, the rowers took to their rowing machines (ergometers) to downtown Northville with the goal of rowing over four hundred miles from Detroit to Mackinac. Thirty-four rowers took one-hour shifts on ten rowing machines – most athletes rowing at least twice, a few rowing three times – and completed over 415 miles for the cause. Rowing for two hours isn’t uncommon for these student athletes. “Since we were giving up practice time for this event, I wanted the rowers to get a real workout,” said the Head Coach. “I wanted them to work hard, raise awareness of the sport and also raise money.”

This year's Rowathon was Saturday, October 15th in the Stampeddler Courtyard in downtown Northville from 10am - 4pm. Thank you all for supporting our team!
