We received our final tally of funds earned as a result of our volunteers for the Head of the Genesee Regatta in October. We have earned $900 towards Mercy Crew! Thank you again to all of those 20+ volunteers from our families that volunteered their time to make the HOG a success!
Volunteer Time Compensated Back to Mercy Crew!
HEAD of the GENESEE REGATTA
SAT-SUN, OCT 5-6, 2019
The Head of the Genesee Regatta Committee is still in need of several more volunteers for the 31st Annual Head of the Genesee (HOG) Regatta the weekend of Oct. 5- 6, 2019. We encourage each of our families to support this effort in some way. It takes the whole Rochester rowing community to make something like this happen, and they look forward to working with the Mercy Crew members. This is a lot of fun and a great opportunity to get out and learn a little bit about the behind the scenes of running a regatta. Saturday are the collegiate races and Sunday are the high school and master’s races. Our girls will be competing during Sunday’s races.
And best of all, any hours that you volunteer are then compensated back to Mercy Crew! The Head of the Genesee always gives back by compensating those clubs who help – a win win! We have earned close to $500 for the volunteers we had at the HOG in past years.
PLEASE consider helping out on Saturday or Sunday – NO experience needed.
Volunteer opportunities are available for both adults and athletes. The athletes can volunteer on Saturday during the college rowing. Any prior experience as a Launch Driver, Marshall, Monitor (aka Umpire) or Timer – please note that on the signup form.
Please feel free to contact Liana Spencer at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
AND MOST IMPORTANTLY, INDICATE THAT YOU ARE WITH MERCY CREW
