Rowing Ergathon Set for Thursday at Barry

MIAMI SHORES, Fla. -- Barry's rowing team will hold its Annual Ergathon from 2-5 p.m. Thursday in front of Thompson Hall on campus.

Members from the rowing team will erg on the rowing machines for pledges. This year's proceeds will benefit Alternative Spring Break. Students, staff, members of the community and fans elsewhere are encouraged to attend to watch and make financial pledges to help out this year's cause.

Alternative Spring Break is an organization that donates its time, volunteering throughout the community for people in need instead of vacationing or having fun on spring break.

Anyone wishing to donate or make pledges who won't be able to attend the Ergathon can send a check to:

Barry University - Alternative Spring Break
11300 NE Second Ave.
Miami Shores, FL 33161

Barry will open the season Mar. 16 at the Canal 54 Duals in Fellsmere, Fla.
