Helen for Houston
For today workout, we’re teaming up with our friends at beyond the whiteboard to support their Helen for Houston initiative to help CrossFit Affiliates affected by Hurricane Harvey rebuild their gyms and communities. CFSBK will donate $1.50 for every round of “Helen” completed at the gym on Friday and Saturday. You must post your workout results to the comments section of today’s blog post in order for your work to be counted. As beyond the whiteboard says:
It’s important to remember that the people who own and run these affiliates are small business owners. They are not part of a big globo gym system. It’s your mom-and-pop gym that happens to be the best gym in the area. If you’re a member of a CrossFit Affiliate, then you know what we are talking about. This is their passion project.
100% of money raised will be donated to affiliates in the Houston area who need help. Join us this week for #HelenForHouston. Helen is one of the most popular benchmark workouts in CrossFit and has been done over 126,000 times on btwb.
As an added bonus, BTWB will be picking three random blog commenters today and giving them their choice of CFSBK merch (hat, shirt, socks, whatever!) as a thank you for participating!
Additionally, we’ll have a computer set up so you can donate to this and other relief organizations like the Red Cross, UNICEF USA, Houston Food Bank, and Texas Diaper Bank if you need that extra nudge to donate to any organization providing relief. Every little bit helps!
This is a good time to recognize that staying fit makes us all better citizens, more equipped to help ourselves and those in need in times of crisis. So come on in today or tomorrow, do your best “Helen,” and don’t forget to note your results on today’s blog post!
TODAY: Prospect Park Potluck
Celebrate the end of summer with your CFSBK buds. This afternoon, CFSBK will be hosting a potluck at Prospect Park. Come lounge on the grass, throw some frisbee, toss the ol’ pigskin, and hang out with your gym buds. What better way to celebrate Labor Day weekend?
We’ll be on the hill south of the Picnic House from 2pm on. Bring a dish or drink to share. Friends, family, and dogs are, of course welcomed. We can’t wait to see you there!
