I need sponsors to help me raise money for CrossFit Zen. I am participating in a 15 min workout where every repetition I perform counts towards my total score. Sponsors may make a donation by clicking the "DONATE" button or sponsor me based on how many reps I complete.
CrossFit Zen is a 501(c)3 Nonprofit which maintains youth scholarship and community outreach programs. CrossFit Zen works within the community to build a strong foundation for living an active lifestyle in order to promote childhood fitness and wellness that will carry on into adulthood.
On Saturday, June 1st, 2013, CrossFit Zen is holding its 2nd Annual Community W.O.D. Fundraiser. The purpose of this fundraiser is to both promote the community partnership between CrossFit Zen and Da Vinci Science High School, as well as to raise funds for CrossFit Zen’s community outreach programs.
Throughout the year, CrossFit Zen concentrates its efforts on giving back to the local community through hands-on CrossFit training and nutritional counseling. Each week, we volunteer our services by taking our equipment to local schools and recreational facilities, where we offer our services to those young people who would not otherwise have access to the type of training and education we provide. Here, we teach kids the CrossFit foundations which include nutritional counseling.
Among local youth groups we serve are the following:
• Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa's Summer Night Lights Initiative - Imperial Courts Recreation Center (Watts, California)
• DaVinci Science High School CrossFit Seminar (Hawthorne, California)
• Alexander Hamilton High School Cross Country Team (Los Angeles, California)
• Junipero Serra High School Girls Soccer Team (Gardena, California)
