NRRA Community Challenge 2017
One goal of the Community Challenge is to help raise funds for MZMF. As a non-profit, we rely on donations in order to give everyone, regardless of age or income level, the opportunity to enjoy a lifelong passion for the sport of rowing. Any donation goes completely towards the MZMF Scholarship fund.
Matthew Zucker was a member of the Norwalk River Rowing Association (NRRA) Youth Rowing Program from 1994 to 1996. His rowing experience was instrumental in helping to improve his self-discipline and self-confidence and gave him a focus he soon grew to embrace. Shortly before his high school graduation, Matthew fell victim to brain cancer and died in 1998. His family established the Matthew Zucker Memorial Fund (MZMF) within the Norwalk River Rowing Association to promote youth rowing and provide financial support for students in need of assistance in order to row.
