ABOUT OUR IMPACT
Each year, Erg Ed introduces rowing to thousands of students in physical education classes. Since 2010, more than 120,000 students have been introduced to the sport of rowing through Erg Ed, with currently over 36,000 youth participating annually, the Pocock Foundation is partnered with dozens of boathouses and public school districts with one goal in mind: helping more kids find, start and stay rowing, regardless of circumstance. Simply put, we develop partnerships and raise funds so that any young person who wants to row on a team has the resources and support to make it happen.
