CFSC Supports Every Child Outdoors

So far, CrossFit Santa Cruz has raised enough money to support Outdoor Science School tuition discounts for 80 students in Santa Cruz County! I am overwhelmed with appreciation for all who have joined the team, donated, or expressed interest in helping out. The Human Race Event is on Saturday, May 9th. We are still building our team of CFSC supporters for Every Child Outdoors.

Huge thanks to Hannah, Kai, Amelia, Rebecca, Diana, Dave C, Amy, Carole, Reilly Rose, Scott, Hollis and Stacey for signing up to be on the team. And there are many more of you who have expressed interest in the fundraiser.

There are lots of ways to help out!
You can participate in any combination of the following:
1. Join our team on the Human Race website and raise money to help reach the fundraising goal
2. Donate to sponsor yourself or someone else who is participating in the race (every penny is greatly appreciated)
3. Join the team to participate, support, have fun and spread the word about E.C.O. (no donations necessary).

The purpose of this event is to raise money AND awareness. So if the cash isn't flowing for you right now... no worries! This is going to be a fun event and the more people on the team, the better. If you're interested in joining, click here.  You can also email me at if you have questions.

There are many benefits for students who attend the Santa Cruz County Outdoor Science School including, increased independence, social skills, activity level and science knowledge.  It has been proven that a week at the Santa Cruz County Outdoor Science School has a positive affect on students' attitudes towards hiking and being outside.  This is an important benefit for so many students who spend their afternoons in front of the TV.  Lets do what we can to get every child outdoors!  

HUGE APPRECIATION for Amelia and Kai who, so far, are in the lead for the top fundraiser spots. At the end of the event, the top two CFSC fundraisers will win a free month membership to the gym.
