Community outreach is an important element in the missions of the University of Washington Athletic Department and Windermere Real Estate Company. Each year, athletes from the Windermere Cup teams participate in an event that brings rowing to youth in the Seattle community. Over 60 children take part in the program annually.
For those children that might not otherwise be exposed to the great sport of rowing, they are introduced to training, nutrition, equipment, and other factors necessary to develop a world-class rowing program. They also enjoy meeting rowers from around the world and learning about their native country. Although the kids enjoy every moment of their visit to University of Washington, the Windermere Cup rowers feel they benefit the most from spending a day with energetic and lovable youth.
