This time last year, the fledgling debut of an outdoor fundraising sporting event at Rock Island State Park called the Rock & Row Triathlon took place. The event encompassed a 5K paddle, a 5K run and a 5K bike ride and ended up raising $1,734 for one of our local state park treasures.Now it’s time to do it again, as the second annual Rock & Row event is scheduled for Saturday, April 22, as participants paddle, run and bike for Rock Island State Park. This event starts at 10 a.m. and begins with a 5K paddle (canoe, kayak or SUP), followed by a 5K run and ending with a 5K bike ride.
