It's Time for the 2011 Holiday Challenge!

Nov 21, 2011

In the US, it’s Monday of Thanksgiving week, and many of us spent at least part of the weekend preparing for the holiday: cleaning the house, finalizing the menu, making the pie crusts…and dusting off our ergs for the Holiday Challenge! That’s right! If it’s Thanksgiving week, that means the Holiday Challenge starts in just a few days!

The challenge officially begins on Thursday and runs through Christmas Eve. Row and/or ski 100,000m during this time (and log the meters in your Online Logbook), and Concept2 will donate $.02 for each kilometer (1000m) you accumulate to your choice of the following organizations:

If you get beyond 100k, we’ll donate $.04 per kilometer (for kids and adaptive athletes, the $.04 rate will take effect at 50k). Our goal through this group effort is to raise $30,000 to support these causes, and every bit adds up! Since adding the donation component to the 2008 Holiday Challenge, together we’ve raised over $80,000 for many great causes! Click for full details on this year’s Holiday Challenge.

So, between the baking and feasting and merry-making, please join us in getting those flywheels spinning, and let’s see what we can do!

We wish you many good meters and all the best this holiday season.

When @jane.erbacher comes to town it’s fair to say a workout with a #SkiErg will be thrown down. #Concept2
