Join us for our 7th Annual HHSRC Erg-A-Thon held at our very own stomping grounds - Hillsborough High School!

Enjoy some market shopping, too!

What is an Erg-A-Thon? It is our biggest fundraiser of the year! HHSRC student athletes will compete against one another for the longest distance rowed on an erg in 30 minutes, with individual distances recorded. Each competitor obtains sponsorship either with a flat amount or on a “per meter rowed” basis.  With average distance rowed at the event of 5000 meters per individual athlete, a sponsorship of just one cent per meter = $50 for HHSRC!

Donations can be paid via PayPal and the QR code below (Add Student-Athlete's Name), check made payable to HHSRC, or cash. All donations are due 10/8/2023. Donation form for cash and checks can be found here.

Get the word out! Student Athletes, please send out Erg-A-Thon sponsorship requests on your favorite social media or via email/text to family and friends! Social media/email/text example can be found here.  

Our goal is for each student-athlete to raise at least $250!

  • Student-athletes who raise $500 or more will be entered into a drawing to NAME A BOAT SEAT!
  • The student-athlete who is the top fundraiser for this event will win a $100 Amazon gift card.
  • Our top Male and Female Erg-a-thon Varsity and Novice athlete competitors will each win a $25 PLANET SMOOTHIE gift card, a pair of rowing crew socks, and exclusive bragging rights!

Are there any other competitions? YES, a “MINUTE TO WIN IT” (MTWI) competition where families/friends can enter with a $5 donation to HHSRC. Each competitor will erg for 1 minute as fast as they can! The top male and female student-athletes with the furthest distance in 1 minute will each win 25% of all monies collected for the MTWI competition. A MTWI 2023 award will be given in these categories: Adult Male, Adult Female, Male Student Athlete, and Female Student Athlete.

We need your help in meeting our fundraising goals! All proceeds will be used for HHSRC operating expenses and to fund equipment that will help us remain competitive as a team and improve the experience of our student-athletes! Contact with any questions.
