On Sept. 1, 2018, the CrossFit Foundation is hosting the first annual Saved by the Barbell community fundraiser workout in support of CrossFit for Kids.
We will be doing the posted workout at CrossFit Defiance and hope that you will join us in this worldwide fundraising effort and community event!
As kids get sicker with chronic diseases, school districts cut recess and P.E. budgets, cafeteria food and school vending machines encourage the worst possible nutrition habits, and a sedentary life spent indoors on the couch becomes the norm for kids of all ages, it’s hard not to get discouraged about the future of health and fitness for kids. And the realities are even harsher for kids in disadvantaged homes or communities.
The CrossFit affiliate community knows the answer: So many of you run CrossFit Kids programs in your boxes or have supported a CrossFit program in your local school district. You know that all kids benefit from the opportunity to participate in the fun, supportive fitness community that we’ve chosen for our families—a community that can shape healthy habits for a lifetime.
The CrossFit Foundation works to bring that opportunity to as many kids as possible through support for a network of charities that provide CrossFit programming to at-risk youth, and by funding schools and school districts seeking to implement CrossFit for their students.
All proceeds raised by the CrossFit for Kids: Saved by the Barbell fundraiser workout will support those efforts. (From CrossFit HQ Saved by the Barbell)
You can register with a $35 donation, which will include a T-shirt and participation on the worldwide leaderboard, or you can simply just participate for fun along with the rest of the CrossFit community on Sept. 1, 2018.
We hope you can all join us for this very unique opportunity to all do something amazing to help give Kids a lifelong love for fitness and healthy living.
