A few dozen rowing machines will fill the basement at St. Anthony of Padua Church on Sunday, March 3rd during the Litchfield Hills Rowing Club's annual fundraiser for the Junior Diabetes Research Foundation.
Club members will spend most of the morning and early afternoon rowing for pledges to the cause. Their goal is to row 1 million meters. To make a donation, head down to the basement and cut a check.
Some of the participants, including Egils Bogdanovics, have diabetes. Other participants have family members or relatives who have the disease.
