Date: 15 September - 16 September
Location: CrossFit Meilen, Meilen, Switzerland Web Home: http://www.crossfitmeilen.ch/ and http://crossfithorgen.ch/
On the weekend of the 15th Sept. we will put our physical and mental fitness to a test. 24 workouts and activities, 24 hours, non-stop. No sleep. We will 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 working to recover from 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.
It is called the Victory Garden Campaign and is responsible for the creation of more than 17,000 home vegetable gardens in the past 2 years. 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).
