BENEFITING: Wheeler Mission Ministries
CrossFit gyms in the Indianapolis area are invited to compete in this Indy Affiliate Championship.
There are more than 1,600 homeless men, women, and children on any given night right here in central Indiana. These are our neighbors. They are classmates of our kids. They are people who need our help. Together, we can help change lives. On June 28, join us at CrossFit Indyshield--where the community will come together to take a stand for our homeless neighbors. Will you help us to "Strength in Our Streets?"
CrossFit Indyshield is teaming up with IFD and IMPD and will be hosting an all-day CrossFit competition called "Strength in Our Streets" in which all proceeds earned will benefit Outreach, Inc. and Wheeler Mission Ministries, two local Indianapolis charities for the homeless.
This one-day event on June 28, 2014 will include 10 member co-ed teams, each competing in various workouts to be judged and scored based on the standards set by local CrossFit gym owners. A component of the competition will be fundraising to help the homeless.
IFD and IMPD are standing behind this event, and will show their support of our community’s homeless by incorporating movements during select workouts that represent real life scenarios to be consistent with law enforcement and fire fighting.
• 10 people per team (5 men, 5 women)
• Must be able to lift 50 pounds to the shoulder
There is no registration fee for this event. Instead, there is a minimum fundraising amount of $75/person or $750 per team. All fundraising is done through this fun and easy-to use website before the event, so there’s also no collecting money for you! But don’t stop there, because the first round of competition is, indeed the fundraising, so the more you raise, the more points you’ll get before you even do the first workout!
