Gentle Giant To Sponsor 53rd Annual Head Of The Charles Regatta

SOMERVILLE, MA (August 2017) – Gentle Giant, a Boston moving company, is pleased to announce its continued partnership with the Head Of The Charles Regatta, an annual rowing competition that draws in athletes and spectators from all over the world. Our company has been a regatta sponsor since 2011, and we are looking forward to another great year.

“Gentle Giant is a moving company founded by rowers, and each year we get to sponsor the biggest rowing event in the world. The cultural synergy is incredible” said Niles Kuronen, a Senior Marketing Specialist at Gentle Giant.

As an official sponsor of the regatta, we will be assisting with transportation and storage needs on behalf of the other sponsors that ensure the event is successful. We assist with delivery and assembly of items from other sponsors as well.

Additionally, this marks the 12th year since the founding of the Gentle Giant Rowing Club, a non-profit community rowing club based in Somerville, MA. Gentle Giant prides itself on developing leaders within the company, through training and coaching programs, and strives to extend that same opportunity to local youth in the Somerville area through rowing. Gentle Giant Rowing Club has regularly competed in the Head Of The Charles Regatta since its inception.

We also bring the Gentle Giant Challenge to the event, a family-friendly challenge for participants of all ages. The participants must climb up a set of stairs and quickly descend via the slide attached to the opposite side. We offer prizes to the top finishers in various categories.

“It’s exciting to not only participate as the official movers, but to watch coworkers participate (and often medal) in the races, it feels like a company holiday. So much of our company culture comes from the rowing community. We couldn’t choose a more perfect event to be involved with” said Danielle Rankin, the Marketing Manager at Gentle Giant.

We look forward to seeing new and familiar faces at the Head Of The Charles Regatta this year on October 21st and 22nd.
