Go it alone or join a team at Pull With Purpose, a fundraiser for the Nyack Center on Mar 2 sponsored by the River Rowing Association.
Participants compete on rowing machines taking turns with other team members. Last year, the RRA raised $10,000 for the Nyack Center. All equipment is provided and anyone can join. There is no registration fee, but all participants must raise at least $75 in donations to the Nyack Center.
The two hour relay race is open to 5-person teams competing for most meters rowed on indoor rowing machines. Winning teams receive prizes. Larger teams are permitted (and encouraged) in non-racing categories.
Registration is at 8a and the race runs from 9-11a. The Nyack Center is located at the corner of Depew and S. Broadway.
If rowing isn’t your thing, your can still help out by sponsoring a team, buying a raffle ticket or baked goods at the event on March 2. For more information, visit RiverRowing.org.
