The Season of Giving – DSC Row Raiser 2016
The Tuesday before Thanksgiving, we had a crowd of nearly 100 people gather for a different kind of fundraiser – a 10,000 m row. For the second year in a row, we partnered with the Dayton House of Bread to take donations in exchange for an 8K or 10K partner row.
Thanks to the McAfee Sports Center for allowing us to set up on the basketball courts, accommodating more than 40 Concept 2 rowers, and more than 80 participants. We had athletes from all over the Dayton and Cincinnati area, of all shapes, sizes and ages.
Together with the House of Bread, we donated nearly three trucks-full of goods, including winter items, pantry goods, household and cleaning supplies, hygiene and children’s items. If you’d like to donate to the House of Bread this holiday season, you can access their current wish list here.
A special thanks to Melodie Bennett, executive director at the House of Bread, for helping us put this event on the past two years. We also want to thank the following businesses and individuals for their part in making this a successful event:
