My name is Sarah Hester and I am a Junior at Los Gatos High School.
This is my second year rowing for Los Gatos Rowing Club, and my first year as a member of the Varsity Women's team. Joining this sport has forced me to push myself past my limits and to see how far I can go. Rowing has taught me valuable lessons that no other sport has taught me thus far - and I have tried almost every sport - such as dedication, perseverance, and the importance of teamwork. This sport has made me into the person that I am today, a stronger and happier athlete, student, and daughter. That being said, I am still learning and developing, and in order to win races this spring, my team and I need the necessary equipment. The money donated in this fundraising event will directly go towards equipment such as boats, cox boxes, and oars. Although the cost to row is pricey, the rewards are absolutely priceless. With the help of your donation, the LGRC VW's team will be able to buy a replacement boat.
We would really, really appreciate any contributions made to this fundraiser! Thank you!
