For those who have not heard, a group of 100 rowers in teams of four decided it’d be “fun” to row from Midnight to 8 a.m. for a very good cause this past Friday/Saturday. Together, the rowers hit 2,666,567 meters and as Dave Farag pointed out on Facebook, that’s similar to rowing from Trident to Colorado Spring, Colo.
The Night of the Low Row was indeed very long, but also very rewarding. I only speak for myself, but I think others would agree that every single rower gave it 100 percent when it was their turn. Even more impressive is that no team took a break throughout the night. Every rower was constantly in motion. That’s eight hours of non-stop rowing.
Vic Hoyos, Jody Cesana, Travis Dolan and all the other volunteers deserve a lot of recognition for putting on a great event that benefited the Eagle Fund, which helps wounded Special Forces.
The photos below only tell part of the story, but don’t give you a sense of the great camaraderie that took place that night.
Well done everyone, well done.
