My name is Soren Beckstrom and I started rowing in 8th grade. I have met many friends at rowing. Some of these friends from other middle schools now go to Los Gatos Highschool which I currently attend. This is nice because we have been able to get to know each other better through both rowing and school. This year I am currently part of the highschool Novice Men's squad. We row five times a week with a total of thirteen hours a week on Lexington Reservoir which is cradled between small mountains covered in forest near Los Gatos. We will have races in Los Angeles, Sacramento, and Oakland. Traveling to races and ensuring that Coaches are paid adds up quick and does not leave money for new boats. New lightweight carbon fiber boats come at a steep price and that is why we are foundrising. By you helping me hit my $450 all the rowers on Lexington Reservoir can benefit from a new boat.
