The Story

UPDATE: This weekend Wilson Crew will be competing in its first race of the season: the Head of the Potomac. In addition to the 70 Wilson athletes getting their first taste of competition this season, the new boys 8+ boat will also have a first of its own: racing under its new name - the Matthew Grau.

Named in honor of our former Head Coach, the Matthew Grau will make its big debut this weekend and we want to send it off right. Please help us celebrate the moment by donating today so we can pay off the boat by the deadline of October 1, 2017! We only owe $6,960 more! 

If you haven't donated yet to help us buy this boat, please do it NOW! Donations of any size are welcome - it all adds up! If you've got a friend or family member who gets up at dawn to row, or you've experienced the beauty of this sport yourself, or you love to support young minds and healthy bodies, or you want to honor Matt Grau, or you know a good investment when you see one... please donate now and ask your friends and families to donate as well!

It is an exciting time for Wilson Crew. Over the last few years, there has been a tremendous effort by the rowers, coaches, parents and the whole community to strengthen the program, and the results speak for themselves: the team has tripled in size, invested in great new equipment, and enjoyed some fantastic race results. In the last two years alone the team has earned 8 medals at WMIRA Championships and advanced three boats to the Finals at Stotesbury and two boats to the Finals at SRAA Nationals!

As the Wilson Crew Boosters, we want to help sustain this energy by making sure the time and effort invested by our dedicated athletes, coaches, parents, and community is matched by an investment in great equipment. Wilson Crew is going places – and buying new equipment will get us there even faster!

That’s why we’re asking you to help us finish paying for our new boat. The boat cost $41,000 and we've raised all but $6,960! The remainder is due October 1, 2017.

Please help us sprint to the finish! Donate today! And tell your friends and family, and post our campaign on Facebook! 

Thank you!
