"The Harpoons" (of Leichhardt Rowing Club) are rowing in the Head of the Yarra, an 8km time trial regatta in Melbourne at which some 2,500 athletes will be competing.
A number of guys in our crew are using this event to raise funds for the Women’s and Girls’ Emergency Centre (WAGEC), an emergency shelter for victims of domestic violence and their children.
The Women’s and Girls’ Emergency Centre (WAGEC) is a non-government, not-for-profit charitable organisation that delivers a range of crisis and early intervention accommodation and support services to women, children and young people, and families who are experiencing or at risk of homelessness and/or domestic and family violence. More detail on what the centre does can be found here: https://www.wagec.org.au/
