RCA launched the All for One fundraising campaign this month, supporting the Under-23 and Junior teams as they prepare for the 2017 World Rowing Championships. The goal of this campaign is to raise funds that will go directly to reducing any fees that athletes face when representing Canada.

Donations can be made at www.fundrazr.com/RCAallforone either to the Under-23 team, Junior team or both, with funds directly reducing the costs for athletes. To show your support of the athletes and the campaign via social media, post #RCAAllForOne on your Facebook or Twitter. RCA would like to thank all individuals who have already supported the next generation of Canadian rowers.
