Special Olympics Row Raiser 2017

On Saturday, July 1st, CFGB hosted the second annual Row Raiser to benefit and raise awareness for the Special Olympics. The concept is simple: teams of 10 compete together by completing a 26.2 mile row to benefit and raise awareness for the Special Olympics. Last year $750 was donated to the Escambia/Santa Rosa County Special Olympics on behalf of CFGB and Average Joe's CrossFit.

We are excited that in 2017, $1,000 was donated Escambia/Santa Rosa County Special Olympics on behalf of CrossFit Gulf Breeze, Average Joe's CrossFit and CrossFit Above the Bar! Thank you Average Joe's and CrossFit ATB for your participation! 

Congratulations to Average Joes's CrossFit, who completed the marathon row in 2:38:11 to take home the trophy for the second year in a row!

We look forward to 2018 being an even larger event and raising even more money for the  Escambia/Santa Rosa  County Special Olympics Chapters.

"Today let us win. But if we cannot win, let us be brave in the attempt."
