I am fundraising for Boston Children’s Hospital!
On Sunday June 30th Reebok Crossfit 5th Ave will host a Rowathon FUNdraiser to benefit Boston Children’s Hospital. Crossfitters from the New York region will pull together to ‘Row Strong for Boston’because we want to help the children who suffered in the Boston marathon tragedy to have the best care possible. All proceeds from the Rowathon go to the hospitals Emergency and Trauma fund.
The Rowathon is a team indoor rowing competition and is sponsored by Reebok and Concept2. Each Crossfit “crew” will row the full marathon distance of 26.2 miles and special prizes will be awarded to the top fundraising team and the fastest team to complete the Rowathon. Each teams’ Concept2 machine will be connected to an interactive rowing program and the “race” will take place live on a digital river and be viewable to competitors and spectators.
Who can participate in the Rowathon?
Everybody. Simultaneous to the team-relay race there will be a separate individual relay Rowathon that anybody can join in on with as little as a 500 meter row. You can also participate in the Rowathon by supporting a member of your clubs crew team with a sponsoring donation or by coming to cheer them on at Reebok Crossfit 5th Ave on Sunday June 30th.Suggested sponsoring donations are 1 cent per meter or $1 to $5 per 500m rowed. Donations can be submitted above or through your Crossfit team leader. The team registration fee is $200 or $25 per person and can be submitted above. Please note your Crossfit affiliate name when submitting your donation.
Row Strong for Boston T-Shirts
All team-relay participants and any person who makes a $25 donation and rows at least 500 meters in the individual relay will receive a Reebok Rowathon t-shirt (while supplies last). You can also help by purchasing a ‘Row for Boston’ t-shirt http://bostonstrong.boathousegear.com/
Order yours today! There will be a limited number of Rowathon t-shirts for sale on event day. 100 percent of t-shirt sales go to support the Children’s Hospital.Boston Children’s has been nationally ranked as one of the best pediatric hospitals for almost two decades. Every day, the doctors and nurses at Boston Children’s combine courage, creativity and compassion to provide life-changing care.
I hope you will consider supporting this fundraising effort.Thank you!
