We all know the benefits of physical activity, but it’s not often that half an hour on a rowing machine can help save a life.
On Sunday, October 2, that’s just what participants in Rowing Thru the 6ix (#Rowing4Action) will be able to do in support of Action Against Hunger, a humanitarian organization that fights hunger and its root causes worldwide.
The inaugural event, presented by Spartan Fitness, will see participants racing to row six kilometres on WaterRower machines — the average distance women and children in Africa and Asia walk to get clean water.
Rowing Thru the 6ix will be held from 9am – noon in Mississauga, next to the Spartan Fitness store at the Heartland Town Centre. Teams of between three to six participants will compete to be the fastest rower, the top fundraiser and the top fundraising team.
