HOW TO HOST A ROW RAISER
Make a Difference Today
The Row Raiser is the official fundraiser for the Dancer Love Foundation. The Row Raiser is a community rowing event, where teams of 10 row a marathon on a Concept 2 Rower. 50% of funds raised will go to the Dancer Love Foundation, 25% goes to the individual that hosts the Row Raiser (funds can be used in any way), and the remaining 25% will go to a foundation of the host's choice.
The official donation form can be found here. If you are interested in hosting, please read the guidelines below of how to host a Row Raiser:
