Members of RC Training & Fitness in Oak Park participated in the gym's "Row Raiser" on Feb. 7 to raise money to support the Dancer Love Foundation and Opportunity Knocks, who serve intellectual and physical disabilities. The Row Raiser is a relay where gym members team up to row a half-marathon. Each team member rowed three reps of 1,000 meters, two reps of 500 meters and one rep of 216 meters. Above, James Young, of Oak Park, gives it his all while teammate Autumn Neuharth looks on. Each team member rowed 3 reps of 1000 meters, 2 reps of 500 meters and 1 rep of 216 meters.
