Ergathon

Capital Juniors invites YOU and your friends to meet, eat, and compete at our annual ergathon fundraiser. Like a walk-a-thon, an ergathon raises money for a certain amount of meters completed on a rowing machine or “erg.”

Capital Juniors combines academics and competitive rowing to build in DC’s young people discipline, camaraderie, fitness, knowledge of water safety, 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.
