The Loyola University Maryland rowing program turned in an impressive effort on Wednesday at its annual Row for Humanity event, rowing for 12-straight hours to raise money for Loyola's Habitat for Humanity chapter.
Student participants joined the rowing team on ergometers in McGuire Hall from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Head Coach Al Ramirez also said the team receives pledges and sponsorships after the event is over, as well.
The effort benefits a local Habitat for Humanity group in West Baltimore.
Row for Humanity is a national event that began at Kansas State and has spread to Tulsa, Bucknell, Boston University, George Washington, Mary Washington, Northeastern and Michigan. The event makes the largest one-time donation that many Habitat for Humanity campus chapters receive annually.
The team will continue to be taking donations for the next three weeks. Those who are interested in donating can fill out the form in the brochure available here.
