Will you help us raise $100,000 for people with intellectual disabilities?
We have joined a group of fitness, health, and nutrition professionals all over the world on a mission to raise $100,000 for the Special Olympics and people with intellectual disabilities.
The Special Olympics, with thousands of local chapters around the world, is a global movement of people creating a world of inclusion and community. That sounds like something we need a little more of right now. Community and inclusion are core principles at CrossFit Dagda so an initiative like this really hits home for us.
The Special Olympics believes that people with intellectual disabilities can, with proper instruction and encouragement, learn, enjoy and benefit from participation in individual and team sports. Necessary adaptation ensures to meet the needs of those with intellectual and physical disabilities. Through sports, their athletes celebrate their abilities, not their disabilities. Their world opens with acceptance and understanding, while becoming confident and empowered by their accomplishments. They make new friends, joining the most inclusive community on the planet—a global community that is growing every day.
All proceeds raised will go to our local Special Olympics chapter and support our local athletes. Now, we are not just looking for a handout. We want to earn it, so we think you are going to love what we put together. We are calling it Reveal the Champion Within You, a 10-day challenge to reveal that champion in each of us and support Special Olympics.
The program consists of 10 mini fitness challenges. One mini-challenge per day for 10 consecutive days. The challenges are simple, can all be done at home, and do not require any special equipment. And, what’s even better is you will have access to a smartphone app that will deliver the challenges and give you a spot to tick off what you did each today.
So, not only does the Special Olympics get the funding they need to Reveal the Champion in those with intellectual disabilities, you get 10 days to Reveal the Champion Within Yourself.
Everything kicks off on March 21st – Down Syndrome Awareness Day but we will get you into the app a day early just so you can get a feel for everything.
When you sign-up you will be added to the app and get access to the app shortly thereafter.
On March 20th you will get a notification to check everything out on the app then your first challenge will appear on the 21st.
Ready to take on the challenge and SUPPORT a great cause?
Donate what you can, even a $5 donation will be appreciated!
