The “Paint Piatt Pink”
4th Annual Row-A-Thon was held October 26
th, 2019 at CrossFit KMC and hosted 17 teams –double the amount of
teams from year 1! This equates to 98 participants rowing either a “survivor”
distance of a half marathon, or a full marathon (42,195 meters) in teams
of 6. Through these efforts, the funds raised will go to support breast
cancer patients with care baskets and support throughout the year. The
Prairie Dragon Paddlers, a breast cancer survivor rowing team in Central
Illinois, also joined us this year. The event was sponsored by Monarch
Brewing Company who had delicious product on site for participants to
sample as well Jimmy Johns, who had lunch on site for every participant.
This event is held every October by Kirby Medical Center and CrossFit
KMC in support of Breast Cancer Awareness month.
