ABOUT THE MBS ROW-A-THON for GOALS.
On Sunday, December 6th from 3-5pm, teams of 4 will row a series of fun sprints to raise money for the GOALS program. Much like we must accept a certain level of uncertainty when we enter river canyons, the specifics of each sprint will not be released until the day of the event, but have been designed to mimic many of the themes we teach kids on the river. The overall event is intended to be fun, create community, and include anyone interested in participating - with no event lasting more than a few minutes for each rower.
The "rowathon" is being hosted by MBS Crossfit in Broomfield, Colorado and will feature food and drink, music, raffle prizes, a GOALS slideshow, and some really fun rowing (details to be announced). Prior to the event, each team will raise money in the form of pledges from friends and family that will benefit GOALS - a Colorado nonprofit that takes kids on life-changing multi-day wilderness river expeditions. The top performing teams - in both money raised and rowing prowess - will walk away from the event with some great prizes - including an overnight river expedition in Westwater Canyon of the Colorado River; and the knowledge and pride that you helped shape the future for the next generation!
ABOUT THE BENEFICIARY.
GOALS (”Get Outside And Learn Something) is a 501(c)3 nonprofit that uses wilderness river expeditions to change kids’ lives - giving them more self-confidence, awareness, and resilience while teaching them how to identify healthy risks, embrace the person they are today, and become the person they long to be in the future.
GOALS expeditions are available to all kids between 4th grade and college, and take place on rivers in Colorado, Utah, Oregon and Idaho. Through events like the MBS Crossfit row-a-thon, more children can be served by GOALS and experience their unique growth process that combines more fun than you can imagine with more power than we can describe - all in some of the most beautiful terrain on the planet.
