Eric Hughes $50K Challenge

by Friends of Green Lake Crew

As part of our fundraising efforts for the boathouse, we are proposing a special challenge to paddlers to raise funds in Eric Hughes’ name. Eric Hughes, a paddler, coach, and teammate, was an integral part of the boathouse for decades, and we would like to honor his legacy with a bench or space within the boathouse named for him.  We would love to honor his memory in this way.

We invite you to take part in the fundraising challenge for Eric. Giving can be a simple one-time gift via credit card, check, or stocks, or you can make a pledge and spread your payments out over time. Use this page to make your one-time credit card gift today. 

Other ways to give to the challenge:

  • To make a pledge spread out over time or to contribute via check, stock, or other means, please click on our Donate page. 
  • To purchase an engraved brick paver which would also count toward the Eric Hughes challenge, click on our Buy-a-Brick page.

All donations to the Eric Hughes challenge will automatically count toward the Race for the Boathouse.

If you know someone else who might want to honor Eric, please feel free to share this information.  Please help spread the word!


“Go Seattle! Team Points”…


Thank you so much for your willingness to help honor Eric in this way and for supporting the future of paddling at Green Lake.
