Dear CrossFit Community,
I am honored to be part of an effort to raise money and awareness for Operation Underground Railroad (OUR Rescue). If you haven’t heard about this organization yet I recommend you do some quick reading about it, truly amazing. To me, this organization represents what we strive to do every day in the CrossFit gym: it represents normal people achieving far more than most would think possible, pushing themselves out of their comfort zone, facing a challenge and taking it on with passion and desire. This is a few good people going out and saving hundreds (soon thousands) of children from this worlds greatest evil…slavery. Please take the time to read the following and then choose how you would like to support the cause:
Option 1: Share links to our rescue on your social media channels or blogs, help us raise awareness. Website: http://www.ourrescue.org Twitter: @ourrescue Instagram: @ourrescue Facebook: Facebook.com/OURrescue
Option 2: (If you’re a gym owner) Host a fundraiser WOD at your gym on Saturday, November 15. Have your clients register to participate and donate HERE. WOD is a team workout (2 guys or 2 girls) and the cost is $60 per team. All proceeds go directly to support missions to save children. You don’t need to register to host the workout, just make a decision and share this info with your clients. Direct them tohttp://utecrossfit.com/slavestealer for information. There is an RX, scaled, and teen version of the workout. Participants will be ranked on a worldwide leaderboard.

Option 4: Warrior Yoga PLUS Dinner and Unbeatable mind seminar on November 14 @ 5:00pm-8:00pm. For $100 you can participate in a warrior yoga session led by Commander Mark Divine, founder of Sealfit and best selling author. We will then serve a dinner (Cafe Rio catered) and Mark will present for 1 hour on his Unbeatable Mind strategies developed through his experiences in martial arts, yoga, meditation, and time served as an active duty Navy SEAL.
