Academy of Lions CrossFit is planning an event that will help promote CrossFit in Ontario.
They started a project two years ago training homeless kids in CrossFit and integrating them into the operations of their gym and community. They have since launched a Non-Profit Foundation and one of the kids who was homeless is now going on a great trip. His success story is incredible.
Here is a recent CBC Radio piece that describes it all.
They are trying to raise $5000 to help poor communities in Peru and also help Amedeo learn new skills and get new opportunities.
They are going to accomplish this via a Burpee FlashMob on June 11.
Here is a video that describes the event.
They have a temporary page up that shows the details and you can visit it to learn more.
You can support them by coming down to the FlashMob and wearing the Official Shirt. Details are in the video link posted above.
They are also going to host a party back at their gym afterwards and everyone is welcome to come.
