2021 Benefit Breakfast | 2.26.2021

A lot has happened since the 2020 WRA Breakfast Benefit. It was shortly after last year’s event that our worlds were turned upside down. 

The Whatcom Rowing Association has been able to make ends meet with the support of its members, the Payroll Protection Plan, and by transitioning our classes into smaller boats to comply with local health guidelines.  It’s been an adjustment for everyone, but we are thankful that we have this group of dedicated and inspirational people to lean on during this strange time.

Like most events, our annual fundraiser will be moving to a virtual format. We are adjusting to an evening Zoom event. Mark your calendars for Friday, February 26th at 7 pm. Now, more than ever, WRA needs your support to get through this trying time. Please purchase your ticket for the event below and hear from our membership how rowing has helped them through the pandemic. Those who register by February 12th will be entered to win a dinner at home from a local restaurant! 

WRA believes in the benefit of rowing access for all.

The Whatcom Rowing Association is a nonprofit, community-based rowing club that has served Whatcom County since 2011. We are dedicated to offering individuals of all ages the opportunity to learn the sport of rowing in a safe, fun and beautiful environment. WRA offers a variety of programs for all age groups and experience levels. We feel the positive attributes of rowing are tangible across a lifespan and we are passionate about providing access to all. Whether you have have previous experience or have never touched an oar we have something for you.
