Hello, 2017!

Happy New Year, Everyone!!

2016 was a very successful first full year as a Foundation, and our primary goal was achieved - to award two students who lost a parent with a $2,500 scholarship toward their college tuition. Thank you to everyone who was involved with that - Run for Row attendees, donors, volunteers, our Board of Directors, and all the love from family, friends and strangers. This could not have been achieved without each and every one of you, and it's our hope that 2017 is just as successful!

The updated Scholarship Applications for 2017 will be accessible as of the beginning of February, and we will introduce them with a blog post.  Thank you for your patience!  

Some goals for this year:

* Develop an official website for The Matthew R. Row Scholarship Foundation
* Add two members to our Board of Directors
* Meet and exceed donations for funding, and increase attendance for the 9th Annual Run for Row
* Reach more people in the Western New York area to not only provide them with the opportunity to apply for the scholarship, but to make sure they (as well as their parent) have access to any grief/peer support that might be helpful to them.

Wouldn't it be amazing if we had so many donations that we would be able to provide scholarships to even more high school students entering college?!

Let's all strive to have open minds, hearts, spread love, and make 2017 a great year!

Love,
Andrea

This Sunday!!!

Online registration for the Run For Row has closed, but don't worry! If you didn't get a chance to register online, you can do it in person on the morning of the race!

This Sunday, August 14th at Como Park in Lancaster- race starts promptly at 10am, so give yourself enough time to register and join us for all the fun! ☀️
If you're not able to make it this Sunday and would still like to make a donation, you can send a check payable to The Matthew R. Row Scholarship Foundation to P.O. Box 931, Buffalo, NY 14225.

This year, The Matthew R. Row Scholarship Foundation has awarded a college scholarship to two local high school seniors in the amount of $2,500 each. In addition, we offered their remaining parent/guardian a paid registration to one of the Camp Widow® programs offered by Soaring Spirits International.

This is the first time we're able to award scholarships, so we are very eager to reach as many people as possible so we can continue doing so!

Please help spread the word by liking and sharing this post- just that simple act can make a difference. Thank you!

8th Annual Run for Row 5K

The Run for Row is presently our only source of funds for The Matthew R. Row Scholarship Foundation, so we also rely heavily on donations. Please consider making a donation either through our Go Fund Me page, or you can send a check to P.O. Box 931, Cheektowaga, NY 14225 payable to The Matthew R. Row Scholarship Foundation. Every dollar goes to the scholarship awards.

The 2016 application period is now closed, and we are looking forward to reviewing all of the application packages we have received. We are excited to award two deserving students with a $2,500 scholarship each- it will be so difficult to choose only two!

Please stay tuned for updates!
