What Is Row 4 Dough?

Row 4 Dough is an exercise fundraising event benefiting the athletes of Special Olympics Illinois. This event challenges participants to row a 5 K, half marathon or a full marathon.

Although we will have select in person event across the state, Row 4 Dough will be continue to be held as a VIRTUAL format. Rowers are encouraged to compete as a 5-person team (rowing 13.1 miles), a 10-person team (rowing 26.2 miles) or as an individual (rowing a 5K). All virtual participants/teams get to choose the location and method to complete their distance between August 13 - September 12.

 

How Does It Work? 

The Virtual Row 4 Dough is a great way to support the athletes of Special Olympics Illinois no matter where you are! Participants pledge to row a specific distance between August 13 - September 12.
