Port Rowing Donates $10K to Long Beach High School

Port Rowing traveled to Long Beach High School on Tuesday to make a donation to the school's athletic department. As a result of Hurricane Sandy, the Long Beach school district lost the majority of its athletic equipment, uniforms and the usage of six of its seven gymnasiums. As the community rebuilds its homes and schools, the athletes at the high school have worked on putting their teams and lives back together. Port Rowing raised $10,000 at its December Ergathon and decided to donate to a local cause and help kids their own age.

Officials say it is the largest donation from one organization that the Long Beach school has received. The high school athletic department will use the funds to help rebuild their programs.
