2021 Virtual Benefit

A lot has happened since the 2020 WRA Breakfast Benefit. It was shortly after last years 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 I’m so thankful that we have this group of dedicated and inspirational people to lean on during this strange time.

I miss everyone’s smiles, laughter, motivation gained from working out in a group or with a partner, but I’ve been buoyed by the efforts of our coaches to adjust workouts and reach out to contact our members.  I’m even grateful for our monthly (virtual) board meetings so that I can see familiar faces that all share our common goal of promoting a healthy community through rowing!  I look forward to our membership meeting at this end of this month, where I can hopefully see some of those faces that I don’t get to anymore.  

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!
