Background Discussion
Manatee Youth Rowing hosts an Annual Run to Row event, which attracts approximately 250 people.

The pre- and post-run activities will take place at Ft. Hamer Park, in the open space areas and the pavilion on May 2, 2015.

The money raised from this event will be used to benefit Manatee Youth Rowing.

In previous years, Manatee Youth Rowing has requested a full discount of fees in exchange for taking care of the rowing facility and instructing Palmetto, Southeast, and Manatee High School rowing teams.

Manatee Youth Rowing has once again requested a 100% discount. In accordance with Resolution R-14-173, Board approval is required and staff recommends approval.
