EVENT: Strength In Our Streets
On any given night, there are more than 1,900 homeless men, women, and children 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 20, 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 and the Indianapolis Department of Public Safety (Fire and Police) will be hosting a one day competition called "Strength In Our Streets", an open event to all affiliates. ALL proceeds earned will benefit Outreach and Wheeler Mission, two local Indianapolis charities for the homeless. (Funds managed by National Christian Foundation)
The Indianapolis Department of Public Safety is standing behind this event, and will show their support of our community’s homeless by incorporating movements during select workouts that will honor current and fallen fire fighters and police officers.
