Rocinha Strong: Building Strength and Community
Organized by: Samantha Stone
Our friends in Rocinha need the funds to build a home, a physical space, for their healthy community. Rocinha CrossFit is the only non-profit CrossFit affiliate in Latin America, and the incredible team of leaders there is making strides toward becoming a beacon of personal and community strength. We all know how valuable a health-conscious, motivating community can be in our personal and professional lives, and it will certainly continue to grow in importance for the lower classes during this divided time for Rio de Janeiro.
Children, women, and men in Rocinha will benefit from this space by way of fitness based classes, nutritional programs, healthy lifestyle education, and above all else, a sense of personal and community pride. The team in Rocinha needs our help to get this vision off the ground.
Your donation will go directly to the community in Rocinha, and will help to fund renovations of their prospective donated building, gym equipment, and initial utilities. Thereafter, Rocinha CrossFit will be self-sustainable through nominal membership fees and quarterly regional events and workshops.
