Erg-a-thon FAQ’s



Hello! My name is                                                        and I am on the Westford Littleton Crew Team. On Saturday, March 28th, I will be rowing 10,000 meters (or 10 kilometers) at our Erg-a-thon, which is a fundraising event for my team. We are trying to raise $22,000 as a whole to buy a new boat. Would you be willing to sponsor me to help us reach our goal? All donators will be put into a $50 Burtons Grill gift card raffle and any donations made to my team are tax deductible.
