Sports for Proteus-Eretes M8+!
Georganiseerd door: Eva van Hooijdonk
Begunstigde: Proteus-Eretes M8+!
Hi family, friends, club mates and other visitors of this Crowdfunding page!
The Proteus-Eretes men‘s heavyweight crew is planning to go abroad this year! After a very successful season with many wins we are ready to show our skills outside of the Netherlands.
To achieve this goal of going abroad we qualified for two races with our two heavyweight club eights. One at Henley Royal Regatta (HRR), a prestigious race in the UK at which top clubs from all over the world compete for the ultimate win.
And a second boat at the European University Games (EUG), a yearly race in which universities of Europe come together and show off their skills to each other. The race takes place in Coimbra, Portugal this year.
This project is huge for our club, a total of 16 rowers, 2 coxswains, 3 coaches will have to travel to the race locations and compete for multiple days. So we are asking you, our family, friends, club mates and other interested people and parties for a contribution to be able to compete in these races.
The total costs of competing at these international regattas is about €700 per person, which makes a total of about €15000. Our team consists of full time master and bachelor students, who are performing sports at a very high level of intensity (practicing 9 times a week, with races every other weekend). This means that it is extremely difficult to generate additional income next to our studies and sports and we are therefor asking you to support our crews. Our goal is to collect an amount of €10.000!
So what can we give back to you, our supporters? We will announce incentives along the way as we reach benchmarks for the crowdfunding. However, along with those incentives we also have rewards for small and big donors!
€15 - Exclusive access to pictures and personal blogs from the rowers, coaches and coxswains.
€30 - A personal thank you postcard from Coimbra, Portugal or Henley-on-Thames, UK.
€75-150 - Are you currently rowing at Proteus or any other (semi) local club? One of our rowers or coxswains will come coach or steer your boat!
€150 - A meet & greet and BBQ with the crew. During this get-together it is possible to row with either one of the crews!
While we are training towards the competitions we will keep everyone updated with blogs, pictures and videos on our heavyweights pages:
To keep everything interesting we will keep up with the fundraiser with benchmarks! Every time a benchmark is reached we will update you with a video!
€1.000 - At a thousand euro‘s we will organize a small give away in which 3 people can win shirts specifically designed by the one and only Wim!
€2.000 - A Tug-of-War in C4 boats! Which boat will win? Which boat will end up toppling over?
€5.000 - Our coxswains will thank you by erging a 2k max each! Even though the coxswains have promised to never, ever, ever do a 2k. This promise will be broken to thank you for €5.000! Will their PR be above 8 minutes?
€7.500 - to be announced...
€10.000 - to be announced...
Thank you for supporting our goals!!
