Capital Juniors wants to ensure that more DC-area students have the chance to experience rowing and to make their own memories on the water. To make rowing safe, affordable, and accessible to as many DC-area students as possible, we’re raising money to support Capital Juniors outreach and operational expenses. This fundraiser leads up to our annual Ergathon, an event where the team will collectively row 250,000 meters. That’s how dedicated the Juniors are to the team!
Help more kids get on the water and earn their seat in the boat. By supporting Capital Juniors, you’ll ensure more DC-area students can join a team that emphasizes teamwork, personal accomplishments, fitness, and friendship.
Any donation will go a long way to helping me meet our 2019 fundraising goal, and all donations are tax deductible.

Capital Juniors, a program of Capital Rowing Club that combines academics and competitive rowing to build in DC’s young people discipline, camaraderie, fitness, and stewardship for the Anacostia River.
Through our program, all DC youth, especially those from low-income areas, have access to rowing and academic support and can apply the lessons they learn in excellence toward successful futures.
