Rowing 4 Reading is a fundraiser event to help sponsor a library in Tejakula, Bali. With money we have raised in the past two years we are traveling to Bali with our Girl Scout Troop to complete our Silver Award, the second highest award you can earn as a Girl Scout. While there we want to leave a lasting impact on the local school we are volunteering in. We wanted to bring our love for reading to the children in Bali by bringing them age appropriate books for their age and grade level  in both English and their traditional language. We both are on our local school crew team as well as our community Crew racing teams. What better way to add our two passions together than to host a fundraiser where people can get together, have fun, see who can row the fastest, and at the same time raise money for a great cause.


There will be four categories, Adult Elite, Adult Novice, Teens Elite, and Teens Novice. Using Indoor rowers, provided for you, your team can select to row a 25K or 10K. Elite Categories will row a total of 25K with no more than 5 people on a team. Novice Categories will row a total of 10K with no more than 5 people on a team. You are allowed to break the row up however you want as long as the total amount of the category you selected is rowed. To be able to row in the Teens category you must be no older than 19 years old. Your team Category is based on the oldest member on your team.
