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 June 18 for an affiliate competition and take a stand for our homeless neighbors. The first "workout" is fundraising for Outreach and Wheeler which will help them provide critical food, shelter, and care for the homeless who come through their doors. Will you help us to "Strength In Our Streets?" Together, we can help change lives!

All donations are non-refundable
Are donations tax-deductible?
All donations are tax-deductible. A receipt will be emailed to donors from CrowdRise. All funds will be held and distributed by National Christian Foundation and donations will be equally split between Wheeler Mission and Outreach to be used to help our community's homeless.
What do I do with checks or cash?
Checks should be made out to National Christian Foundation. Write in the memo "Strength In Our Streets". On your fundraising page, enter all offline donations (checks or cash) in the "manage my team" tab. -> "toolkit" -> "manage offline donations". This will keep your page up-to-date so your team will receive full credit for all of your fundraising. Bring all checks and cash in an envelope, clearly marked with your name and your team name and the total amount inside the envelope.
Can I change team members?
Yes. Email all changes to firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible.
Can a team be made up of athletes from multiple affiliates?
The short answer is no. The intent is to have an affiliate competition, not create "super teams". It's a fun event for charity that most levels of athletes can compete in. If you have a specific circumstance that needs clarification, please email email@example.com.
