It’s time for the 2024 #PCR10kChallenge!

Please join us as we work together to reach our goal of rowing (or cycling, running, etc.) a collective 1,000,000 meters and raising $25,000. Every dollar raised will directly support the success of PCR’s summer programming & our student-athletes.

  2. DOCUMENT YOUR 10K ✓ Take a selfie, photo, or video upon completing your workout.
  3. UPLOAD ✓ Upload your photo to social media, tagging/challenging at least three of your friends or family members. Make sure to tag #PCR10kChallenge and @philadelphiacityrowing!
  4. GIVE (IF YOU CAN) ✓ Go to or Venmo (username: PhilaCityRowing) to support our program and help us bring this life-changing sport to public school youth throughout the city.
