Traditional, yes – but there’s an environmental twist to the classic event this year. Inspired by the passion of the PCR student athletes for environmental justice, Earth Month, and PCR’s organizational commitment to being good community members and stewards of the Schuylkill River, PCR is attaching a theme to the Challenge: sustainability & environmental justice.

If this new theme resonates with you, PCR and Ready, Row! USA invite you to mix the hashtags below into your workout and social media posts – we’ll give you some ideas on the pop-up podcast. Use them all for a chance to win gadgets & gear from #ReadyRowUSA!
