EVENT: Strength In Our Streets 2017
Thank you for visiting my fundraising page!! Please read the following to know why I am so passionate about competing AGAIN this year and fundraising for my team:
THE NEED. Homelessness knows no season! On any given night, there are over 1,600 homeless men, women, youth, and children right here in central Indiana. These are our neighbors. They are classmates of our kids. They are people who need our help. Outreach and Wheeler Mission serve hundreds of homeless people every night of the year.
YOU CAN HELP! Join us at CrossFit IndyShield (IMPD Training Academy) on Saturday, June 24th for an affiliate competition and take a stand for our homeless neighbors. The first "workout" is fundraising benefits Outreach and Wheeler Mission which will help them provide critical food, shelter, and care for the homeless who come through their doors. Will you help us add "Strength In Our Streets?" Together, we can help change lives!
Outreach is a faith-based nonprofit organization in Indianapolis, Indiana, that reaches out to homeless young men and women (ages 14-24) with the compassion of Jesus Christ. Their goal is to equip and empower these at-risk young people to achieve stability and life transformation. They believe in the redemptive power of Christ to help homeless youth find a home by offering them the hospitality of Christ, journeying with them and encouraging transformational guidance, and instilling in them hope to exit the streets and move toward a stable lifestyle.
Wheeler Mission helps the homeless and needy in Indiana. Founded in 1893, Wheeler is the oldest continuously operating ministry of its kind in the state of Indiana. Their mission is to provide Christ-centered programs and services for the homeless and those in need. Their Vision is to see every man, woman, and child we serve equipped to be productive citizens who enjoy lasting success in Christ.
