Region H Row 4 Dough

What is Row 4 Dough

Rough 4 Dough, presented by Jones Chiropractic, is an exercise fundraising event benefiting the athletes of Special Olympics Illinois. Participants can compete as a five person team, a 10 person team, or as individuals.

Five person teams will row a half marathon, ten person teams will row a full marathon, and individuals will row a 5k.

This year’s Row 4 Dough will be returning to the Chatham Jaycees Sweet Corn Festival. Registration will start at 7 AM on July 22 at Chatham Community Park, and we will begin rowing at 8am.

All rowers must collect a minimum of $50 in donations from family, friends, and coworkers to participate.

Each rower to reach the fundraising minimum of $50 will receive an official Row 4 Dough workout shirt. Register by July 1 to be sure to receive your shirt the day of the event.

Your participation in Row 4 Dough will give you that feel-good energy as you support Special Olympics Illinois, but you can also earn highly coveted prizes. Rowers who reach the $250, $500, $750 or $1,000 fundraising levels will qualify for additional Row 4 Dough incentives!

Make sure to follow us on Facebook at Special Olympics Illinois – Region H. Use the hashtag #Row4Dough to tell us your reason for rowing this year!

We will have awards for the Top Fundraising Team, Top Fundraising Individual, Fastest Team, Slowest Team and Team Spirit.
