Our participants report that PCR "feels like family." PCR values the community that we have created within PCR and empowers student-athletes to be good citizens of the broader Philadelphia community. PCR also promotes volunteer civic engagement activities through collaborations with other organizations and service opportunities for participants. This past year PCR staff and student athletes volunteered their time to the Mural Arts Project, Broad Street Run and Fairmount Park Conservancy's Love Your Park Day.
PCR works to engage families of our participants through our booster club. The booster club provides healthy foods for our race days and coordinates community events that involve our rowers. As a result of these efforts, the race day food offerings this year were exceptionally healthy, nutritious, and reflective of the cultural diversity of our participants. Over 75% of our participants engaged in at least one community event. To become get more information about our Booster Club, click here.
