USRowing Honors Those Who Serve
By USRowing Staff • November 11, 2016
This Veterans Day, we reflect and show gratitude to the brave men and women who voluntarily entered harm’s way to protect our nation. Join us in celebrating our veterans all weekend long and enjoy some of our favorite moments from USRowing’s Freedom Rows program this year.
Generous contributors have raised $13,480 to help us change the lives of veterans by supporting programs designed to give back to those who have served our country! Special thanks to Power 10 for its $5,000 contribution to the campaign!
Please join USRowing in its continued efforts to open boathouse doors throughout the country to disabled veterans and members of the armed services by donating to Freedom Rows! usrow.us/USRDonate.
My strength to endure pain and to compete comes from my strong faith in God and the unwavering love and support of my wife, Amalia. I try to focus my attention on creating a better quality of life in the present instead of dwelling on past struggles and disappointments, to maintain that Never Give Up attitude, never have excuses to pursue goals, and inspire others to do the same. With Freedom Rows, I have the opportunity to represent the United States in uniform again, this time on the field of athletic contest.”
