Row Raiser 2019

Bill RR

Row Raiser . . . raising resources for the Defined Special Olympics Powerlifter Team.

On September 6, 2014, Sam Dancer and his staff at QTown Crossfit partnered with Area 11 Special Olympics to help raise monies for a few “special” athletes through the Row Raiser. Since then, this event has helped support countless athletes and has raised over $150,000 through nationwide Row Raiser events.

The concept is simple: Participants join together in teams of 5 to 10 and complete a 26.2 mile row (42,195 meters) on Concept 2 Rowers. With all proceeds directly supporting the Defined Special Olympics Powerlifting team and the Dancer Love Foundation.
