This month during the week of April 27th – May 1st we have dedicated this week to a “Week of Giving.” Since this particular week falls on the 5th week of programming (we only run on a 4 week programming and billing cycle) we have decided to keep the gym doors open and invite the Austin community, at large, to join in this week for a workout and help support The Flatwater Foundation.
The Flatwater Foundation is an Austin based non-profit dedicated to providing those diagnosed with cancer, their families and loved ones access to mental health therapy and family support. This includes access to both traditional and non-traditional methods of psychological counseling.
Our goal during this week is to raise 10,000 dollars to give to The Flatwater Foundation to help Austin families in need. Both CrossFit Central locations will combine together the funds raised to reach $10,000. We’re asking, since this week is technically a “free week” of classes, that everyone donates a suggested amount of $20 per class they attend ($20 is the amount CrossFit Central charges for a drop-in class).
Also, during this week we have decided to open it up to the community at large. This means that if you’re new to CrossFit or have been CrossFitting for years and you want to come and check out either of our locations you can do so this week at any of our regular scheduled classes! This is also a great opportunity for all current Central Athletes to bring a friend or two to workout!
CrossFit Central has also formed a team, these athletes on the CrossFit Central Team, committed to raising $2,000 each and paddling 21 miles together on the annual Dam That Cancer fundraising paddle supporting The Flatwater Foundation. Each person had different reasons for taking on this event but they share a common cause, supporting The Flatwater Foundation.
We are so grateful to be a part of this event and the opportunity to once again help provide those diagnosed with cancer, their families and loved ones access to mental health therapy and family support.
During the Week of Giving, which begins April 27 – May 1st, you will have 3 ways to donate to The Flatwater Foundation:
1. You can pay directly on MBO! There will be an option to either donate 20, 50, or 100 dollars. This can be done at home or when you come to the gym we can process your donation at the front desk!
2. You can make a cash or check donation. All checks must be made out to: The Flatwater Foundation
3. You can donate directly to the CrossFit Centrals Team Page – HERE
We will see you ALL during the Week of Giving!
