Every year The William & Mary Rowing Club offers residents of the area assistance with their yard and housework. This is a great opportunity to help you maintain your home and prepare it for the upcoming seasons.  For $15/hour, you can rent an athlete and allow them to help you rake leaves, clean your garage, repaint a fence, help you move and more. All donations will go towards the team's equipment and travel expenses.  Our team members are all physically fit, hard working, and happy to help you with any task.  Have a particularly large job?  Feel free to request more than one athlete at a time.  As well as physically demanding jobs, our student-athletes are capable of taking on other challenges as well. Please read below to find a sample of potential ways we can help you.

If you are interested in renting a rower, please email Rent-A-Rower coordinator Ian Wilkinson (wmrc.fundraising@gmail.com) or fill out out our online Rent-a-Rower Request Form.  If you are in need of immediate assistance, feel free to call Ian at 312-925-2221.
