George Pocock Rowing Foundation Breakfast Fundrasier JL

With over 22,000 youth participating annually, Row to the Future is one of the George Pocock Rowing Foundation’s greatest youth development initiatives. The GPRF is partnered with multiple boathouses and public school districts in the Pacific Northwest with one goal in mind: helping more youth find, start, and stay rowing, regardless of circumstance. The Row to the Future Benefit Breakfast is the largest annual fundraising event for the GPRF's comprehensive need-based scholarship and community engagement programming.

The 12th Annual Row to the Future Benefit Breakfast will be hosted by Marcie Sillman (KUOW host & rower) and featuring a panel of youth representing our Pacific Northwest Boathouse Partners. The panel will be moderated by award-winning author, US rowing golden oars winner, motivational speaker Arshay Cooper.

WHY IT MATTERS

The George Pocock Rowing Foundation (GPRF) works to help youth FIND, START, and STAY Rowing. This means we…

FIND: Create opportunities through rowing programs like Erg Ed to help middle and high school students discover rowing.
START: Provide scholarships for kids from low-income families to start rowing at their local boathouse.
STAY: Through partnerships with major organizations and boathouses we build the support needed to keep youth rowing.

    Row to the Future is the GPRF’s youth development initiative. With currently over 22,000 youth participating annually, the Pocock Foundation is partnered with dozens of boathouses and public school districts with one goal in mind: helping more youth find, start and stay rowing, regardless of circumstance. 
     

    Thank you for making Row to the Future the largest youth rowing outreach effort in the country.
