Fifth Annual Row for Autism Event


On April 16 at 8 a.m. at North Hempstead Beach Park, the Town of North Hempstead will be partnering with Friends of Port Rowing to host the fifth annual Row for Autism. The regatta will feature teams from throughout New York and nearby states that are rowing to raise money and awareness for autism. Twenty-five percent of the money raised will be donated to Autism Speaks of Long Island, with the remaining proceeds going toward the purchase of adaptive rowing equipment, which allows a disabled teenager to be paired with a typical peer mentor. North Hempstead Beach Park is located at 175 W Shore Rd.
