Holiday Challenge Charities

There's also a charitable giving aspect to the Holiday Challenge. Here's how it works: For every person who rows, skis or rides 100k during the challenge, Concept2 will donate $.02 per kilometre (1000 metres) to your choice of this year's charities. Once you get beyond 100k, we'll donate $.04 per additional kilometre. 
In order for your metres to count, however, you must choose a charity from the front page of your Logbook (or select "Let Concept2 Choose" if you don't have a preference). For kids and adaptive participants, the $.04 rate will take effect at 50k. Note: BikeErg metres count for half the distance when calculating your Holiday Challenge metres and any related donation.
The 2017 charities are:
Looking forward to seeing you all get involved!
