Meet Vivian Another One of Our Coxswains:

Vivian safely guides our boats giving clear and loud direction. This strong voice belongs to Vivian Zebrak who is a student at Brighton High School began her rowing career with her Brighton High School Junior Rowing Team. From the start, Vivian was enthusiastic about the idea of coxing and took a job coxing with Genesee Waterways Center. It was Vivian's coach who also let her know about the position with Naiades Oncology Rowing and we are certainly glad he did. Vivian loves being on the water and being in a boat with friends. When Vivian is not at school or rowing, she also enjoys art, painting, sketching and hanging out with her friends on the crew team. Through her rowing and coxing experiences, Vivian has learned volumes about these sports and has gained an abundance of leadership and organizational skills. We appreciate having Vivian on our team and look forward to rowing with her in the seasons ahead!

A Big Heartfelt Thank You for Your Donations to ROC the Day!
