When the UMass Minutewomen set out to raise funds to travel to the Henley Women’s Regatta, we worried that it may be too late in the season to embark on such a lofty campaign. However, you have proven us wrong! We have been overwhelmed with your generosity toward the program and are pleased to say that you have made the dream of competing internationally a reality for the UMass Rowing Program.
Because the response to this campaign has been so positive and supportive we would like to extend our fundraising goal to $40,000 and keep the Minutefund page live for an additional two weeks. By raising an additional $15,000, we will be able to cover the entire cost of the trip for each student-athlete. Originally, we had asked the student athletes to the cover the cost of their flight and other miscellaneous costs, which we realize can be very expensive, but you have shown us that this is a burden that we can lift for them.
If for some reason we do not achieve our new target goal, any and all funds raised will be distributed evenly among the student athletes attending the trip in order to help pay for the remaining costs.
We cannot thank you enough for your generosity and making this campaign a success! Please continue to share the link to our Minutefund page through the end of this month: https://minutefund.umass.edu/UMassRowingtoHENLEY!
