Rowing Team Dates:
August 6 2014 -August 10th, 2016
The Military Assistance Project Team is Rowing the Rogue River on a Charity Paddle, dedicated to raising funds to provide legal and housing services to Philadelphia veterans and military personnel.
Purpose for Rowing:
My friend, Sheila Hughes, did the MAP Mt. Kilimanjaro adventure and loved her experience. I wanted to engage in a similar experience with MAP or organizations like it, where I can get outside and get active, meet new people, and give back to others. This is a great opportunity to do all three.
