Stroke for Sight. Apollo Rowing !

We are rowing in Apollo Rowing's STROKE FOR SIGHT campaign for Rose Charities NY which provides medical services to the poor in several developing countries. Our goal is to raise $500 to pay for 20 eye surgeries ($25 per sight-restoration surgery) which will restore sight and help a family member become an asset - not a burden. Please visit our fundraising page for more details or to donate

Apollo Rowing is planning its 'Stroke for Sight' fundraising campaign this summer, where rowing clubs and individuals will compete for an Apollo Rowing boat by raising funds for Rose Charities. Apollo Rowing will encourage rowers and rowing clubs to compete with one-another in this off-the-water fund raising competition. Club teams or Individuals will try to raise at least $500 per team to pay for 20 eye surgeries at Rose Charities eye clinics in developing countries. However the individual or club that raises the most money for Rose Charities will be awarded an Apollo Rowing rowing shell. This is a great way for Rowing clubs to get a new boat, while helping a worthy cause. If you would like to register or if you have any questions, feel free to contact John at Apollo Rowing at 781-632-8828 or at john@apollorowing.com , or at Rose Charities at Contact@RoseCharities.org for more details.
