These looming battles come in many forms and occur on many fronts, but each comes down to a critical choice: to demand victory or accept defeat. To pull together or fall apart. To give in or cave in. It is a decision each Marine conveys to our Nation with each battle won.

Liz and Michael Copley in memory of their daughter Carley, a brave 3-year-old who succumbed to leukemia in 1996, have been extraordinary supporters of the Crew Classic and the Carley Cup. They feel that “in giving life her best effort, Carley remains a winner forever, and the Cup is a reminder that a part of winning is sharing your talent and achievements with those less fortunate.” Carley’s sister and three brothers, and Liz and Michael, continue to be active in the community. Young patients being treated at Rady Children’s Hospital and their families continue to enjoy Carley’s Magical Gardens and the Carley Copley Hematology/Oncology Clinic — both gifts from the Copley family to the community.
Concept2 began in 1976 in the back of a bread truck when Dick and Pete Dreissigacker, fresh from Olympic training, started making composite racing oars. Concept2 oars have since gone on to become the oar of choice among the world’s rowers.

Now several models later, it’s used every day by Olympic athletes, cardiac rehab patients, individuals at home and every caliber of rower in-between. Concept2’s product line now includes oars, RowErgs, the SkiErg and the BikeErg.
