Every year, more than 100 people from all around the city of New York and beyond join together to row 30 miles around the island of Manhattan to raise money for Rocking the Boat’s programs for youth in the South Bronx. This is Rocking Manhattan. (2018 rain date is Sunday, September 30.)
If you are interested in forming a team and have questions, please contact Talene Kelly, talene @ rockingtheboat.org
Rocking the Boat empowers young people from the South Bronx to develop the self-confidence to set ambitious goals and gain the skills necessary to achieve them. Students work together to build wooden boats, learn to row and sail, and restore local urban waterways, revitalizing their community while creating better lives for themselves.
Kids don’t just build boats, boats build kids.
