"Boatloads of Good Samaritans"
On Monday March 7th Purdue Crew handed over a check of about $8,500 to Lafayette Urban Ministries executive director Joe Micon on behalf of the team's Row-a-thon effort. The check, which is one of among the largest donations the LUM receives for the Good Samaritan fund, helps pay for families unpaid expenses. WLFI Channel 18 news was at the event to capture the moment. View the news cast and read more here: http://wlfi.com/2016/03/07/boatloads-of-good-samaritans/
Thanks to our many supporters and our rowers Purdue Crew raised a total of $17,054 in the row-a-thon effort! Half of the money raised will go to the team itself to help keep costs down for rowers and pay for some of the many expenses involved in the sport. The second half of the money raised will go to Lafayette Urban Ministries and help families in need in the greater Lafayette area. This Monday March 7th at 3pm Purdue Crew will present the check to LUM. Purdue Crew and LUM sincerely thanks everyone for their support with this effort!
