Boat Naming in Honor of CYR’s Spring 2020 Graduates
2020 has been a time of tremendous challenge and uncertainty, but also thoughtfulness, planning, growth. . . . AND GRADUATION!! CYR rowers graduated from high school and from our team. Several graduates received and accepted collegiate rowing opportunities, and all of them benefitted from a dedicated coaching staff, training regimen, friendship and team experience.
Our team had the foresight to purchase 20 new single shells for practice and competition, a capital expense of $3500 per single that has allowed practice to resume and competition to restart this fall. The new shells have added significant depth to the CYR fleet, enabling the team to train in a new way that has proved genuinely transformational already.
This fall, we are asking for your help to offset some of those costs through a campaign to name at least two boats in honor of the 2020 CYR Graduates, a total amount of $3500 each – one for 2020 CYR Women’s Graduates and one for 2020 CYR Men’s Graduates. Contributions of any amount are welcome and appreciated and, if at least $3500 is received for either boat, all of the respective graduates’ names will be listed on the applicable boat. Honor your graduate, friend or former teammate. Please designate your 2020 CYR Graduate Boat Naming donation as either:
- 2020 Women’s Graduates; or
- 2020 Men’s Graduates; or
- If you would like to donate $3500 for naming rights to one of the other new shells, please designate “Boat Naming”.
Note that names stay on a boat for as long as it stays in CYR’s fleet. Donations to the 2020 CYR Graduate Campaign may be made via:
