Several teams rowed a marathon, 26.2 miles, to raise money for the Special Olympics Tennessee Saturday.

It was the first time for the ThROWdown event, in which teams of 10 people competed.

Each team had to raise a minimum of $500.

Teams competed from across Chattanooga, including the Chattanooga Police Department and get BUILT Chattanooga CrossFit.

"They are rowing a marathon, so 26.2 miles, competing against each other for fastest team, top fundraising, top fundraising individual and most team spirit," Jennifer McAfee, with Special Olympics Tennessee, said.

If you weren't able to donate or help fundraise Saturday, on Monday, Special Olympics Tennessee is hosting a Tip-A-Cop event.

You can eat dinner at any Texas Roadhouse location in Tennessee from 4:00 pm to 8:00 pm and a Chattanooga Police Officer will be accepting tips for Special Olympics Tennessee.
