Fundraising Goal


Rowing To Beat Parkinson’s.

The goal of Human Powered Potential is to explore and expand our capacity for endurance β€” mental, physical and spiritual β€” while engaging in endeavors intended to test our limits. The team’s current challenge is to row across the Pacific from California to Hawaii in June 2024, as a part of the World’s Toughest Row.

Our team has more than 125 years of human-powered experience including climbs on 8000-meter peaks in the Himalaya; single-push alpine ascents in Alaska, Canada and South America; ultra-running, cycling, and skiing events; and the Race Across America (RAAM).

We are rowing to benefit the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research.
