CRF's mission is to make rowing, and all of its social, emotional, physical and mental health benefits, available to everyone, without regard to where they are from, any physical or intellectual limitations they may have, or how much money they make. Fundraising for the Bank of America Chicago Marathon directly benefits two very special groups: Chicago Rowing Foundation's (CRF) adaptive rowing programs, accessROW and Pauly's Pals, and high school students who need financial aid in order to row. Oar Runners are running 26.2 miles on October 11, 2015 to raise funds to support these two groups of athletes. With their help, CRF will be able to continue making rowing accessible to all Chicagoans.

Your fundraising support and program awareness helps us continue to make a positive impact on many people's lives. Your fundraising efforts will enable us to continue to provide financial assistance to high school athletes who would otherwise not be able to afford rowing. Additionally, you are helping individuals with physical disabilities and developmental disorders learn to row just like their able bodied peers.
