Note to self: I still need to write something here describing the Univeristy of Lynchburg's Erg Rowing Club (need a better title) and how this brand new pictureclub will promote global diversity while also identifying the "greatest athlete on campus" or stuff like that. Need to add a pictur eof the erg in the weight room. Also... maybe add a section below that gives the best times, by University, for men and women (self reported using this website).
NEED TO IN CLUDE SOME VIDEOS HERE WHERE I DISCUSS ROW4LIFE AND THE BASIC TECHNIQUES OF ROWING
Row4Life will, though rowing competitions mitigate conflict, foster friendships among all ethnicities and genders, establish national pride, and avoid a return to civil war in South Sudan. The key to everything is Global Diversity
This project has several positive effects on the youth of South Sudan:
It is our dream as well as our realistic expectation that within ten years South Sudan can enter and competitively race in world-level rowing competitions (Olympics, World Games, etc.) as the South Sudan Rowing Team.
UNIVERSITY ERG CLUBS
It is also our dream that Erg Clubs will be established at universities, worldwide, all promoting Global Diversity while further advocating abnd highlighting the challenges in South Sudan.
I visited South Sudan (Juba and Wau) for nearly three weeks in July 2022. Click below for updated slide deck.
An erg rower was just recently placed in Warrup Town in Warrup State. So, we now have ergs in three States; Central Equatoria, Western Bahr el Ghazal, and Warrup.
Four more erg machines are ready for shipping. Ambassador Natana has agreed to help. Once in South Sudan they will be assembled and placed at schools in the remaining seven States.
Your donations are very important. Please give generoulsy. We also renovate used erg Concept-2 Rowing machines, and so we will gladly accept these donations, too.
