A buzz was building within Atria Darien. Waldo, Sally, Sid, Dick, Paula, Lois, David and Dotty had been looking forward to this day for weeks. Months earlier, rowing had never even entered their minds. Searching for the next fitness adventure for their residents, Atria reached out to Veterans’ Rowing and Kayaking and introduced the sport to them. After weeks of practice and setting higher and higher goals for themselves, they discovered a love of rowing. Today, this inspiring group of residents is not only gaining strength and reaching fitness goals, but is also setting world records.

This is their story.
