Rett was only 20 years old when she was killed in an accident in January when the rowing crew’s truck collided with a pickup in Florida. Rett’s teammates say they still feel very lost and are looking for ways to honor her legacy. The members of the Holy Cross women’s team were mostly joined by college teams across the country on Saturday as they began rowing turns for 62 consecutive hours in Rett’s memory.
Grace Rett’s teammates, a Holy Cross rower who died in a Florida traffic accident, are honoring her memory with a 62-hour-three-second rowing marathon that will raise funds to start a sports center that her family built in her name. Rett died in a collision last January, a day after celebrating her 20th birthday, during a training trip with the MY Retirement Vehicle Rowing Shirt Cross Girls School rowing team.
The marathon, which begins this weekend on the indoor rowing machine, starts at 8 am on Saturday and is set to last until Monday night, matching the exact timeframe of the world record Rett set established for consecutive indoor rowing just one year ago.
