ROW!4EveryLastChild is a Virtual Indoor Rowing Challenge fundraiser for Save the Children. Our goal is to collectivelyrow (or ride an indoor bike) 101,000 km and raise $101,000 to jumpstart Save The Children's 101st year helping the world's most vulnerable children survive and thrive.
There are more than 1.2 billion (1 in 5) children worldwide living in conflict/crisis zones at risk for an early end to their childhood. Save the Children, an international humanitarian organization working in the U.S. and 120 countries around the world, has a bold ambition to ensure all children survive, learn and are protected. Take a look at this video:
