Norwalk River Rowing Association's Community Challenge offers a course of rowing lessons over a six-week period beginning on Monday, May 20, that culminates in a fun-filled race day on Saturday, July 6.

Proceeds from the event will go to NRRA's Community Outreach program, which provides rowing scholarships to local youth.

Participants will learn basic boat handling and rowing technique through the first four weeks of the program. Teams will develop rowing and racing skills. The final two weeks will focus on race preparation, including practice against other community crews.

Local businesses are also invited to sponsor their employees' participation and may wish to take advantage of boat-naming opportunities.
