Hurricane Harvey Fundraising WOD Saturday, 09-September-2017 starting at 8 am!

CrossFit Memorial Houston will be hosting a fundraising workout for Hurricane Harvey victims on Saturday, September 9. Heats will start at 8 am and we will run as many as we need to. The workout is a partner wod (teams of 2, M/F, MM or FF).

Registration is $50 per team and all donations will go straight to the Red Cross through the crowdrise site. We chose the Red Cross because it will help all people affected by Harvey from Corpus through Houston, Beaumont and Louisiana and not just locally. Some of those area’s don’t have the fundraising capabilities that Houston has available. IMPORTANT: Once you have made your donation on the site, you will receive an email from crowdrise detailing out how to sign up for a division/heat. We will have waivers on hand that morning at check in. The deadline for registration is Friday, September 8, at noon.
