Throughout the month of April, PCR will be hosting our 3rd annual #PCR10kChallenge campaign. PCR student-athletes, coaches, volunteers, and board members will join together with a goal of rowing, erging, or running 5,000,000 meters and engaging 500 participants in the challenge. Every dollar raised will support PCR’s high-dosage sport-based youth development programs that work to empower students in the Philadelphia School District to reach their highest potential.
Inspired by our student athlete’s passion for environmental justice, Earth Month, and PCR’s organizational commitment to being good community members and stewards of the Schuylkill River and surrounding parkland, this year’s 10k challenge will also have a sustainability and environmental stewardship component. In addition to highlighting PCR’s core program and mission, the challenge will feature daily sustainability tips that people can incorporate into their daily training routine and will highlight some of the environmental justice issues that plague our community and directly affect our participants' overall health and wellness.
