Thank you to everyone who donated and/or took part in our first CF24 event at CrossFit BC! We had over 40 athletes attend and with your help, were able to raise $6,799 (almost $10,000 with Raincity Athletics)!
All of the money that we raised here today will be donated to the Special Olympics Canada Foundation, and will directly benefit Canadians with intellectual disabilities by increasing the number of sport opportunities available to them in our community and beyond.
Currently, there are 47,000 athletes participating in Special Olympics programs. But we can do better than that! With over 900,000 people living in Canada with an intellectual disability, there is so much more to be done. By pledging and raising funds, we are making it possible for more people to experience the life changing power of sport and fitness.
By sharing our experience, and by getting to know Special Olympic athletes and sharing their stories, we are raising awareness about this important cause in the hopes that we get even more Canadians involved in this movement!
Fundraising links will continue to be open throughout the rest of this week, so if you’d like to donate to this great cause, please click the link in our bio.
