We hope you enjoyed the Jingle Mingle! – our favorite erging event of the year! We had a variety of activities for all of the Row New York Community, including rowers and non-rowers. Thank you to all those who participated and their family, friends, siblings, and co-workers to who celebrated at this one-of-a-kind event. This year’s Jingle Mingle had more fun in store than ever before!
This year, the Heatmisers won the ergathon, rowing 31,541 meters in two hours! The event featured 30 teams, comprised of all Row New Yorkers in our community. Though the Jingle Mingle is over, there is still time to support your team. Donate here to help your Jingle Mingle team in our last fundraiser of the year!
After the conclusion of the ergathon, we held 250 and 500 meter erg races for participants of all abilities. There were learn-to-row lessons for people who had never done this before, so they got a few practice rows in before the race!
In addition to the erg events, the bake-off competition was fierce this year! The winner was determined by a panel of judges considering both taste and presentation. This year’s winner was Row New York’s very own Darise Jean Baptiste, Director of Academics and College Readiness.
Ugly Sweater Contest:
New this year was our ugly sweater contest. The winner was determined by a group vote, and by a narrow lead, RNY varsity rower Nick Santo won the prestige of ugliest sweater! .
