With our newest addition to the fleet, Pitt Crew kicked off the year on a strong foot. The new eight, bought with the money ALL of YOU donated to this EngagePitt™ fundraiser last year, has played an important role in our team’s success this fall and spring season. Named in honor of Jonas Salk, the “Polio Slayer” has had quite a journey with us thus far. From its first ride at Head of the Charles in Boston to one of its most recent on Mercer County Lake winning gold in grand finals, the heavyweight men’s boat has provided us with the opportunity to race on a higher level than previous to its introduction.
We cannot thank everyone enough for their participation in our fundraising campaign. With your support, we have and will continue to do great things! Our team owes its sense of pride to the wonderful support group and Pitt community that surrounds us. Your support is essential to our team’s progress and encourages us to train harder, push farther, and race faster every day.
Stay tuned for our upcoming fundraiser, which will launch in a few weeks’ time. See you on the water!
