Purdue Row-A-Thon — Spectacle at the Mall

Last weekend, the Purdue Rowing Team brought “Row-A-Thon 2017” to the Tippecanoe Mall (Lafayette) — and drew excited crowds with their fun spectacle of rowing.

Row-A-Thon is an annual charity event that raises funds for the LUM Good Samaritan Fund. Each year, the Row-A-Thon event yields one of the largest donations each year — and this year they’re on pace to exceed their goal.

During Row-A-Thon the co-ed team members row a marathon of 26 miles in three three-hour shifts on indoor rowing machines while raising funds for LUM.
