WHERE: North Hempstead Beach Park
175 West Shore Road, Port Washington, NY 11050

What to expect:
⇒ Food trucks

The Row for Autism began as an opportunity for the participants of Port Rowing’s Adaptive program to showcase their achievements while raising awareness for autism advocacy to the larger community. Since the inaugural Row for Autism, attendance has quadrupled both in sponsorship and participation. Rowing clubs from the tri-state area and Long Island come to race in Hempstead Harbor and public awareness continues to spread.
This year, a portion of the proceeds will be donated to the purchase of training shells to enhance and improve the rowing experience for our adaptive team members.
FREE parking for spectators, friends, and families.
