The first year CLRA particpated in the Harlem River Classic, we got medals for raising the most money. This is New York City’s only regatta and is hosted by Row New York each spring. It’s a day full of competitive racing and fundraising for our programs. Experienced rowers are invited to put together a boat of friends and colleagues for a friendly competition in the form of 500-meter sprints. All of the proceeds of this event will directly support Row New York's youth programs which empower young people from New York City’s under-resourced communities to build strength, gain confidence and pursue excellence through the unique sport of rowing.
