Frogtown Regatta Returns for 34th year in Downtown Toledo

The Toledo Rowing Club’s 34th annual Frogtown Regatta is on September 28, 2019 at International Park. This event will feature a 3000-meter course down the Maumee River, starting near the 1-75 bridge and finishing in front of thousands of spectators at The Docks. It is anticipated hundreds of athletes from all over the Midwest will compete for medals on the Mighty Maumee. Toledo Refining Company is this year’s Platinum Sponsor.

Mike Gudgeon, VP and General Manager of Toledo Refining Company, lead the event’s opening ceremony. “Toledo Refining is always interested in sponsoring events in Toledo that promote the City and provide kids with a sport that improves fitness, fosters teamwork and promotes camaraderie,” said Gudgeon. “We want to see all of the kids from the area join together and have fun competing, representing their schools and getting to know what a great city Toledo is.”

TRC’s Director, Amy Massamore, announced that the Club is partnering with Friends of Lucas County Dogs (FoLCD) to raise money for Lucas County Canine Care and Control (LC4) during the regatta. FoLCD is a non-profit organization formed to supplement the services provided by LC4. “TRC is excited to partner with FoLCD this year. We’re supporting FoLCD because of all the canine and human lives they change through the power of a forever home. Frogtown will feature adoptable dogs, photo opportunities, and family friendly activities.”
