We reached our Crowdfunding goal!!!

PITTSBURGH, PA (Sunday, March 5, 2017) -

Due to amazing support from alumni, parents, fans, and current team members, we have reached our crowdfunding goal of $3500 in about a week! We would like to thank everyone who donated, you generosity is much appreciated!

We raised the funds for our travels to ACRA Henley, which would be our championship race on 5/14-5/15 in Nashville, Tennessee. We have never competed at this race before and are excited to see how competitive we are against new schools! With the funds we also planned to purchase a tent with enclosures and our printed team name and crest. This tent would not only keep us dry during weekend-long races, but would also stand as a symbol for team pride! Check out the crowdfunding website HERE.
