Become a Sponsor for FHE Crew

Rowing may not be as expensive to participate in as Hockey or Dance, but our equipment is extremely costly – especially for public schools! We currently are rowing with many older boats purchased from other clubs. We want to grow this team at Eastern and in order to do so, we need quality boats that can hold up to the fastest rowers!

We are seeking financial support from businesses and individuals to be able to offer this prestigious and important sport to our FHE students. Why is crew so important? The sport itself is one of the best workouts for your body. It involves cardio, muscle strength, working in sync with others and building endurance. All of these skills can be transferred to college and the workforce. Our crew members tend to have above-average grades and find that crew not only is a great workout for the mind and body, but it builds character. Rowers are responsible for making sure their riggings are tight and safe to stand up to the race. Rowers are there for their teammates when they run out of steam and need someone to pump them up. They know if they improve themselves, they could get a win for their crew-mates. This is what we are doing at FHE Crew-building character. Please help us build a great and powerful team!

Our current boathouse houses 6 boats which hold 8 rowers, 6 “4’s” and 2 “2’s.” 

You can help our team get to their regattas and keep equipment in tip top shape!

One of our newest boats! Boats can be over $5,000.00 for a used one!

If you would like to make a donation now, please do so by writing a check to FHE Crew Boosters and submitting to our Board Treasurer, Ruth Brinks. Thank you in advance!

We anticipate offering opportunities soon for sponsors to put their business logos on our crew trailer which travels in the Fall and Spring throughout Michigan. In addition, there will be chances to put logos with a link on this website and on our Facebook pages, signage at our Regatta events and for ambitious donors, the possibility of putting your logo on one of our boats!

These opportunities will be posted on this page.

If you have other ideas of what we can do, please let us know!
