Row 4 Dough

What is Row 4 Dough?

Special Olympics Illinois introduces ‘Row 4 Dough’, an exercise based fundraiser benefiting the athletes of Special Olympics Illinois. Row 4 Dough challenges participants to form a team of ten and be the fastest team to row a combined marathon (26.2 miles) on a row machines across the state!

All rowers must collect a minimum of $50 in donations from family, friends, and co-workers, and team up with 9 other rowers to complete the challenge against other teams. Teams are required to raise a minimum of $500. Each rower to reach the fundraising minimum will receive a Row 4 Dough workout shirt. Further incentives are awarded to rowers who raise $100, $250, and $500.



Use the hashtag #Row4Dough to tell us your reason for rowing this year!
