Support a Good Cause with Your Meters!

As in the past two years, we have selected several charities to choose from for those who wish to allocate their meters to a good cause. This year, the theme is water—protection of this resource for both health and conservation.

For every person who rows or skis at least 100K during the challenge, Concept2 will donate $.02 for every kilometer (1000 meters) you accumulate to your choice of the following organizations:

And once you get beyond 100K, we’ll donate $.04 per kilometer. Our goal through this group effort is to reach a total $30,000 to support these causes. The usual prizes of pin and certificate will still be awarded as well. Note: For kids and adaptive athletes, the $.04 rate will take effect at 50K.

In recent years, we have had around 5000 people participate in the Holiday Challenge! We are hoping to reach 6000 this year, so we invite you to tell your friends about this opportunity to keep fit and support a great cause.

Over $27,000 Raised During the 2009 Holiday Challenge!

During the 2009 Holiday Challenge, we were rowing and skiing for food-based organizations. As a result of your efforts, 1,200,230,946 meters were completed, raising a total of $27,944.36. Every bit adds up! Yet another reason why Concept 2 is such a great company:)

The next Team Challenge is on January 1st, 2011 and lasts for one month.. Our goal is to get at least 50 members on board for this challenge. Roworx had 23 members for the Fall Challenge.

This will help you during the holidays to keep motivated and keep track of your meters. Ask any Roworx Instructor after class to show you how to add up those meters on the monitor if you would like to join in and get hooked into burning more calories.
