What is Heroes for Haiti?
This is a CrossFit fundraiser to support the Cima School of Hope in Haiti. The WOD has been designed to mimic the physical challenges that Haitians face on a daily basis – and is scaleable to allow anyone to participate. For athletes in the greater-Cincinnati area, you are invited to complete the WOD at KW CrossFit. For those of you who live further away, you can complete the WOD in your home gym, while competing against individuals from all over the world.
What does my registration fee and/or donation pay for?
Your registration allows you to participate in this competition, but more importantly, your registration fee will go to raise funds for the Cima School of Hope in Haiti. The funds from the inaugural competition in 2013 were used to purchase land for the main school building. In 2014, the funds were used to purchase a well for the school and the village of Cima. In 2015 & 2016, the funds went toward the construction of the new school building – which is estimated to cost $150,000. In 2017, we’re planning to use the funds to complete the school!
What if I can’t do some of the movements prescribed, can I still compete?
Yes!!!!! The WOD will be scaleable for anyone to complete it. You don’t need to be a CrossFitter to participate.
What if I want donate more than the registration fee?
We are suggesting, at a minimum, a $30 registration fee, but you are welcome to put amounts larger than that! That would be awesome! You can actually sponsor a child for $255 per year. This pays for tuition, books, and a uniform. You can also buy books for the kids – which range from $24/student in the Kindergarten to $60/student in the 6th grade, a uniform for $35/student, and/or a desk & chair for $20 each.
What if I don’t want to compete but still want to donate, how do I do that?
You can still donate by going to the registration page. There will be a designation for participant or donor.
Is it possible to sponsor a student in the Cima School?
Yes! You have the option to sponsor a student for $255 per year. This includes tuition, books, and uniform.
How Does it Work?
You will register online here, and then compete at KW CrossFit or at your home box.
What is the Date?
Saturday, October 21st – If you’re in the Cincinnati-area, the event will begin at 9:30am at KW CrossFit.
