Rowing To Compete, Inspire, And Heal

Rowing To Compete, Inspire, And Heal

By Al Parker

From veterans and CEOs to cancer survivors, middle schoolers and future Olympians, the Lake Leelanau Rowing Club (LLRC) is training and inspiring people of all ages.

Launched in 2010 at the historic Fountain Point Resort on the east side of the lake, the club continues to expand its scope.

“We’re focused on being a positive role model and contributor to the community,” says Founder Erik Zehender, a fourth-generation innkeeper of Fountain Point who has a rowing background. “Our members range from age 12 through their mid-80’s. Through our partnership with the Traverse City Area Public Schools and Learning Enrichment & Activities Program (LEAP) we’re excited to bring competitive rowing to northern Michigan high school students and middle schoolers.” more
