In 2016 CrossFit Crag hosted the first Rowathon for Autism. Over twenty teams of 10 competed to see who could complete a marathon the fastest. We raised over $5,000 for the Autism Alliance of Metrowest.
May 6th 2017 we ran second Rowathon for Autism. In 2017 we had 42 teams of eight compete and raised over $9,000.
Our third annual Rowathon for Autism will be held Saturday, May 5th 2018. Please see below for link to register your team or to make a donation.
Teams of no more than eight people will complete a marathon, 42,195 meters, on the rower. This can be split up however the team wants. Teams may be comprised however you like; all teams will compete in the same division despite makeup. The cost to enter is $350 per team.
All proceeds raised will be donated to The Autism Alliance of MetroWest. It is estimated that 1 in 68 children have been diagnosed with ASD in the United States. Children with an Autism Spectrum Disorder diagnosis exceed non-ASD children in medical expenditures by about $4,000-$6,000 annually. The Autism Alliance of MetroWest began in 1993 as “The Family Voice”, a small group of families with Autistic children who united for support. Today their mission is to provide families in the MetroWest area with information, education and support. They plan and implement programs and events that will aid these families while increasing public awareness regarding autism.
This year the winning team will take home a brand new Concept 2 Rower. Our Grand Prize Raffle winner will also take home a new Concept 2 Rower.
