For the ninth time in the last ten years, Hanlan's Jill Vandal has completed the Concept 2 Holiday Challenge. This year Jill rowed 201,845 metres to comfortably surpass the requisite goal of 200,000 metres to be rowed in the period between American Thanksgiving, November 22 and midnight, December 24, 2012. Her total was just one kilometre shy of her previous year's effort.
If a participant reaches at least 100,000 metres in the Challenge, every metre rowed counts towards charitable donations that will be made by Concept 2. As far as I know, Jill Vandal was the only Hanlan rower to complete this year's challenge. Congratulations!
