UnstoppABLE Rowing Marathon – Bedrock Crossfit Calgary
On Saturday April 13th 100 participants came together to row a seemingly impossible feet of 42.2km (marathon) and row their hearts out in support of Easter Seals Alberta!
The inspiration behind this community event came from Dawn Krpan the owner of Bedrock Crossfit she said “I feel strongly that everyone should have access to fitness. Today I am so proud of my CrossFit communities and the other fitness communities for pulling together to fundraise for Easter Seals Alberta by coming to Bedrock Crossfit for our 1st annual UnstoppABLE rowing marathon.
We have many adaptive athletes that train at Bedrock CrossFit that were able to be on a team during the marathon along with an 80 year old and a 16 year old all working out together. This community of inclusiveness makes my heart sing. Don’t let your age or ability ever let you stop trying!”
The event had a goal to raise $25,000 and by the end of the day the goal was surpassed and the event brought in over $29,000! Easter Seals Alberta is thrilled to have Bedrock Crossfit as a community partner and we cannot wait to see what they have planned for next year. Rumour has it this event is going national, stay tuned for details!
