The Importance of Crossfit and the Armed Forces

One of the many reasons I love Crossfit is the special attention given to our Armed Forces and all of the tributes and fundraisers that the various Crossfit affiliates and members sponsor. One of my neighbors recently made us aware of a family in her church who has a son who was just wounded in Afghanistan. They are keeping a log of his progress and, more to the point of this blog post, they mention how important the Wounded Warrior project is to them:

"Since being here, we have been able to see first-hand some of the great organizations affiliated with the hospital and the wounded warriors. With many people willing to donate on Jake's behalf, we thought some of these organizations are also great places to send donations to, and the proceeds directly impact the Wounded Warriors and their families." Read entire journal post here.

So,whenever you wonder if the fundraisers are helping out or you just don't "feel" like participating, remember that it DOES make an impact and you ARE helping either a soldier or their family. Thank you.
