Dear TJ Crew Parents:   While it feels like winter, we are planning for spring season so it’s time for the Thomas Jefferson Crew Ergathon!  The TJ Crew Ergathon is a wonderful team-building event.  The team works together to row dozens of ergometers (ergs) a combined total distance of 1,000,000 meters. This year’s Ergathon is on Thursday, February 9, 2017 at 4 PM at TJHSST. 


If you’re a business owner, I invite you to sponsor our event.  If you’re not a business owner, please consider asking your employer. The Ergathon has become a crucial fund-raiser for our team.  Last year we had a fantastic event with 110 rowers participating, with more parents in attendance and many great sponsors.  Your corporate sponsorship will not only support the monumental undertaking of this task, but also the continuation of this fun tradition.  Most importantly it will provide much needed support for the crew team at Thomas Jefferson High School! In addition, the kids wear the shirts around the school, advertising your business to a bunch of highly motivated, smart, tech-oriented kids who will be looking for jobs someday. 


Please consider sending us a corporate donation as described on the back of this letter.  Simply indicate your sponsorship level and return the reply form along with a check and a company business card to the address listed. Artwork for logos may also be submitted electronically to  The cutoff date for inclusion on the tee shirt is Wednesday, 25 January, 2017.   

I hope we can count on you to support the team with your corporate donation.  

Please feel free to call with any questions.  

Many Thanks!
