Clemson Crew, Clemson’s club rowing team, is excited to hold our annual Million Meter Challenge fundraiser. Due to the nature of this season and the implications of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have chosen to take a different approach to the event than we have in previous years. Our team will row a collective 1,000,000 meters (621 miles) in a single day,  through an intra-team regatta while simultaneously on our rowing machines.

 

All the information, links, and more that you will need to stay involved with the regatta throughout the day are below. 

 

First of all, we want to send a huge thank you out to everyone who has already donated - we have surpassed our goal of raising $3000 prior to the event and have raised $5,644!  Your support means the world to this team and we can't wait to see it continue today!
