O&R Donates $4,500 to Rockland Rowing Association

O&R has donated 4,500 dollars to help the Rockland Rowing Association purchase a rowing barge. It’s a specially-designed vessel that stays upright on the water to help train adaptive athletes in the sport of rowing. O&R spokesman Mike Donovan says the barge took its maiden voyage June 23rd at Rockland Lake State Park in Congers.

Coaches and trainers can sit next to the rowers in the barge and physically assist the adaptive athletes, helping them learn correct rowing motions. Adaptive athletes from ARC of Rockland participated in scrimmage races following the dedication ceremony.
