Yorktown High School crew team members participated for the 5th year in the annual Row for Humanity fund-raiser on Saturday morning, Feb. 21. The fund-raiser is part of a national event where crew teams around the country participate in their localities raising money for Habitat for Humanity. Erg machines were set up on the third level of the Ballston Mall. Crew members rotated throughout the day from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Money was also raised at the event for the rowing program at the school.
