Safe Haven Refuge serves victims of domestic violence and sexual abuse, and is starting a new project geared towards fighting human trafficking in the Southeast Houston area. 100% of the proceeds from the event will be donated to Safe Haven Refuge here in Pearland to help them get their human trafficking project off the ground. Come out and compete and donate to this worthy cause.
It will be a two-person-team competition (M/M, F/F) competing in Rx and Scaled divisions. There will be two WODs completed more or less back to back in 5 heats throughout the morning and early afternoon. Athletes will register for a specific heat and therefore they will only need to give up and hour to hour and a half of their day.
Bootcamp class featuring Cindy Leach Cañas (Figure Universe Pro Athlete)! If you’re not a CrossFitter, but want to get a good workout in for a good cause, then this is your chance. Check-in at 11:00 a.m. for the 11:15 bootcamp.
