APEX Fun Run is a 2-week hassle-free fundraiser promoting fitness and leadership for elementary schools. A team of athletes will be on campus for the full length of the program to teach students valuable leadership lessons, raise pledges, and serve the teachers.

Their method is to collaborate with school PTO/A's and faculty to build student leaders through a meaningful, “hassle-free” and financially successful school fun run.

They believe:

  • Every child can change their school, and the world, in a profound way
  • Serving others brings the greatest joy and contributes to the greatest good
  • Learning by doing and exercise are both undervalued and under utilized in fundraising today
  • Encouragement and enthusiasm build others up—we will help build leaders
  • Raising money for your child’s school can also serve as a positive learning experience
  • Many people giving a little reduces the individual burden on the typical givers and donors

Teachers also "Have Skin in the Game" and that makes for highly-motivated and excited coaches. The teachers will coach their classroom teams to greater heights knowing that in the end, a portion of what the classroom raises goes straight back to the teacher for their classroom.

CITYROW offers instructor led group fitness workouts which pair high-intensity intervals of rowing with strength and mobility training for the most effective, dynamic workout on the market.

Long favored by athletes, trainers and physical therapists, the row machine is the most effective cardio machine on the market, working 84% of the body's muscles in every stroke with minimal impact to the joints. It's incredibly effective, challenging AND safe for the vast majority of the population and has longevity with its practitioners. Much like spinning and running before it, consumers just need to be educated and sold on its superior benefits.

CITYROW uses the WaterRower, which is the most visually appealing machine on the market. The WaterRower also provides a more fluid/organic rowing experience and is better overall for people who are non-rowers as they are significantly less jarring on the body.
