CFV today we are doing the benchmark workout Helen, but it has way more meaning this time. Please take a few minutes to read below.
We have all heard about the devastation affecting the City of Houston and its surrounding areas as a result of Hurricane Harvey. We can’t imagine what it would be like to find our gym under water. While we can’t all be down there helping clean up, we can try and do our best to help out.
Let’s show everyone how tight knit and amazing the CrossFit community is. The idea is simple, do a workout and donate a few bucks. If you can’t donate then try to get someone else to participate. If you do the workout, post it online and challenge a friend to do it too.
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 pops gym that happens to be the best gym in the area. If you go to 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.
