It’s time for CharityWOD 2019!
Each year, Vero Strength + Conditioning hosts a partner throwdown for a cause. Male/female teams compete in a fun, chipper-style workout while raising money for a non-profit. Our 2019 event will be held on Saturday, May 11 at 8 AM. This year we are really pumped because not only are we celebrating our 10-year anniversary, we have chosen Sunday Strong as the CharityWOD recipient! Sunday Strong is a charity focused on uniting the fitness industry with special needs athletes. The program started at our gym as a free, weekly fitness class and now we are expanding nationwide!
The funds raised through CharityWOD will go towards things like legal fees associated with our non-profit application, trademarking the Sunday Strong logo, marketing and, most importantly, creating a robust website. The website will allow gyms to apply to offer and be trained to launch free fitness classes and will allow special athletes to register in these programs so that they may adopt a healthier lifestyle.
So, get your team together! Each partner team will consist of one male and one female. Divisions include Rx, Scaled and Masters (team has a combined age of 80+). The minimum donation per team is $50 (but feel free to donate more)!
