Trinity students row for a worthy cause

By Emily McAuliffe

The annual Trinity College ‘Row for Rudi’ ergathon kicks off tomorrow, with our students rowing for 24 hours to raise money for charity.

The Trinity College ergathon was started to commemorate and remember the tragic passing of alumnus Rudi Van Breda (TC 2011), who was a passionate rower and member of the Trinity community. Each year, students from our college boat club commit to rowing in relay form for 24 hours to raise money for a chosen charity. 

This year our rowers will donate all money raised to Asha India. This charity aims to break the poverty cycle for those living in slums in Delhi through education and aid. It's an organisation that is close to the heart of a number of our students, given each year a group of Trinitarians volunteer their time in slum communities through Asha.
