CrossFit is organising a community WOD fundraiser for first responders assisting in Ukraine and other war zones experiencing health crisis situations around the world.
The workout, called Hope for Refugees, is set to take place May 7 and 8, 2022.
CrossFit has partnered up with Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) to support global humanitarian health efforts.
“Our community of gym owners and members is one of the strongest in the world, and it’s times like these when we can show what we’re capable of,” said Gary Gaines, GM of Global Affiliates.
“The current humanitarian crisis in Ukraine requires action, and we are honored to be able to assist the Ukrainian people, along with other communities in need, through this partnership.”
The CrossFit team tested the workout last night, which has the same format as Fight Gone Bad, working at each station for one minute, then rotating.
