Minnesota, P.J. Fleck to unveil 'Row the Boat' wall at Masonic Children's Hospital
The Minnesota football program and head coach P.J. Fleck will be at the Minnesota Masonic Children’s Hospital on Tuesday to unveil a special new wall dedicated to the hospital.
Monday, the University of Minnesota released a statement saying that Fleck and the entire football team will be at the children’s hospital on Tuesday to debut the new Row the Boat wall.
The phrase “Row the Boat” has long been a slogan of Fleck’s, bringing it from Western Michigan to Minnesota. According to the release, “the new graphic will tell the history of ‘Row the Boat,’ which is a never-give-up mantra and lifestyle.”
