This is a fundraiser for the family of Journey Campton. Journey, a preschooler in Mattoon, is currently preparing for surgery for her second bout with cancer. You can read about Journey and stay up to date on her progress at Follow Our Journey on Facebook. All registration payments will be given to Journey’s family to offset the costs of not only her medical expenses but to help them with whatever needs arise – groceries, self-care expenses, and more.
Anyone who is in adequate physical condition to complete this task (see details below and on registration page) and is cleared by a physician to exercise. If you want to donate but not physically participate, you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange this.
April 10, 2021 – check-ins will begin at 7:45am.
Pre-registration is preferred.
The event will begin at 8:30am. The row is anticipated to take between <3 to 4.5 hours for completion.
We plan on the final ceremony being at 1pm.

This is a marathon row (42,195 meters) completed in teams of up to 10 (though we are able to make exceptions and adjustments as needed for 10 rowers – see details on registration page). Teams are responsible for determining each “leg” length, can switch rowers at any point; there are no specific guidelines as to how often members should switch.

Donations only: You can simply fill out the form as if you’re registering to row, and in the team name/teammate name blank, type “donation only.” Thank you so much!
