BENEFITING: FACE-TO-FACE PROJECT INC
EVENT DATE: Sep 17, 2016
Date: 17-18 September
Location: CrossFit Meilen, Meilen, Switzerland
On the weekend of the 17th & 18th Sept. we will put our physical and mental fitness to a test. 24 workouts and activities, 24 hours, non-stop. No sleep. Be prepared for the unknown!
We are taking on this challenge to raise funds to make a difference in Malawi, an impoverished country that is currently in a state of emergency, in the midst of one of the most severe droughts in decades.
The funds we raise are used by the Face-to-Face Project to teach villagers a longterm, sustainable way to grow a variety of vegetables and fruits for a more balanced diet, and to do so with an extremely limited water supply and in harsh growing conditions. Face-to-Face is a small non-profit organization that works directly in poor communities with a train-the-trainer approach of teaching villagers to train their neighbours how to start and maintain a permaculture garden.
Funds raised by CrossFit Meilen and CrossFit Horgen will be used to train more facilitators in the field, to provide training and support for villagers to become self-reliant and responsible for their own food security.
We will have many different workouts and activities – detailed program to follow.
Anyone can participate: you can join one WOD, or the 24. There will always be a scaling option to fit your level and we will have WODs where non-CrossFitters can join too.
Participating athletes will be asked to look for sponsors and we are looking for helpers during the event (for example with food or transportation).
