Rowing Without Borders is a fundraising event for Médecins Sans Frontières / Doctors Without Borders (MSF), which is at the forefront of providing humanitarian medical aid around the world. This team-based indoor rowing competition is inspired by the student-run fundraising campaign Music Without Borders, which draws on the diverse talents of youth from different schools, cities, and countries to support the humanitarian work of MSF.
The competition will be in teams of 2 to 4, in two parts—a longer, 16 minute section, and a high intensity 5 minute burst. Teams must fundraise to participate. Prizes will be given out for the teams that row the farthest combined distance, raise the most money, and score the most points, where each dollar raised represents two meters rowed.
