In 2016 CrossFit Crag hosted the first Rowathon for Autism. Over twenty teams of 10 competed to see who could complete a marathon the fastest. We raised over $5,000 for theAutism Alliance of Metrowest.

May 6th 2017 we ran second Rowathon for Autism. In 2017 we had 42 teams of eight compete and raised over $9,000.

Our third annual Rowathon for Autism took place on Saturday, May 5th 2018. CrossFit Crag raised over $10,000 dollars for the Autism Alliance. Taking our three year total donations to $25,000!

Who we help:

The proceeds raised will be donated to The Autism Alliance of MetroWest. It is estimated that 1 in 68 children have been diagnosed with ASD in the United States. Children with an Autism Spectrum Disorder diagnosis exceed non-ASD children in medical expenditures by about $4,000-$6,000 annually. The Autism Alliance of MetroWest began in 1993 as “The Family Voice”, a small group of families with Autistic children who united for support. Today their mission is to provide families in the MetroWest area with information, education and support. They plan and implement programs and events that will aid these families while increasing public awareness regarding autism.
