5 for 5 Hundred Challenge
Challenge yourself, coaches, friends and family to row in a fixed seat like a para rower!
Rower’s Choice, in partnership with Para Rowing Foundation and Athletes Without Limits, has launched an initiative to raise funds to promote the inclusion of all athletes in the sport of rowing. In the continued effort to increase accessibility to our sport for rowers of color and rowers with disabilities, all money raised will be split between Para Rowing Foundation and Athletes Without Limits.
