Internal Fundraising

Madison Turner

Bio:  When I came to Miami, it was the first time I completely started over - new place and new people. Since I had rowed in high school, it was a no-brainer to join MURC. It was amazing to find something familiar and comfortable so quickly after coming here. MURC has not only introduced me to people that I consider family, but given me experiences that I will remember long after leaving and I honestly can’t imagine my time at Miami without them.

External Fundraising
